The Value of the Natural Environment
the 17th March we were please to support Natural
England in hosting a conference to explore the value of the
natural environment in creating a foundation for economic growth
and our health and wellbeing.
The event explored the value of the natural environment and
distinctive landscapes in supporting economic development and
health and wellbeing for Suffolk, Norfolk and the East of
England as a whole. It also considered the challenges we face
for nature to be truly recognised as the keystone of a
prosperous economy and healthy society.
