Following the popularity of last year's green infrastructure breakfast seminars held across the UK, the Landscape Institute will be holding a new series of events in Sheffield, Towcester, London and Motherwell. These events will focus on four case studies from the Landscape Institute's recent Local Green Infrastructure campaign and include a site visit as well as a series of presentations onsite.
The study days are sponsored by WRAP, the government funded agency which helps individuals, businesses and local authorities to reduce waste and recycle more, making better use of recources and helping to tackle climate change. WRAP will present their work at each event.
