Overground Underground – Geodiversity for London’s People    4th Sept. 2018

The London Geodiversity Partnership is to hold its second open meeting to help renew the Action Plan. We invite you to join us to find out more about London’s Geology and how we involve local people and interact with local Government to share good practice, influence planning policy and establish cross-London working for geodiversity.

The workshop is at UCL (University College London), Gower Street from 2pm to 5.30pm on Tuesday 4th September 2018.

The workshop will celebrate the achievements of the London Geodiversity Partnership over the last ten years in implementing its previous Geodiversity Action Plans 2009-2013 and 2014-2018, and identify ways to renew its plan. The afternoon aims to help the Partnership set the timetable for its Action Plan from 2019 onwards. In particular, we wish to build on our relationship with planners, Green Infrastructure practitioners, museums and other institutions working in our field. Both site conservation and recognition in Local Authority planning documents are important as well as identifying and setting objectives.

The first part of the afternoon will be a scene-setting session followed by sessions that give the opportunity to discuss how we can work together with those involved. Full details of the programme and speakers will follow shortly.

We do hope you will be able to join us and would be grateful if you could forward to other interested parties. The event is free, but booking is necessary via Eventbrite. Tickets can be obtained via the link:
