Natural Assets North at the Northern Forest

The first of IPPR North’s Natural Assets North events will take place at the Northern Forest in Smithills, Bolton, BL1 6JZ on the 27th June at 11am.

Natural Assets North is a new project which investigates the natural potential of the North of England, including the quality of its landscape, its water and coastlines. You can find out more about the project here.

In this visit we want to examine the importance of green infrastructure and landscape and begin the process of developing a set of priorities for policy makers in the North longer term. The event will take place as a site visit and discussion with Natural England and the Woodland Trust at Smithills, about what we can learn from what is being done at the Northern Forest for the rest of the region.

Places are limited so please book your place now, here
