In order to understand the progress being made towards environmental growth in Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly, we need to recognise and celebrate the achievements made in the region.
At the Cornwall and Isles of Scilly Local Nature Partnership conference in Truro on December 2nd, Cornwall’s Environmental Growth Strategy will be officially launched. Professor Kevin Gaston will be giving an introductory talk on ‘A Year in Cornwall’s Environment’, followed by talks on environmental growth by representatives of a variety of organisations in the South West.
We would like to invite you to join a discussion below on Cornwall’s and the Isles of Scilly’s environmental achievements in 2016, and propose the question:
