In this illustrated presentation, UK environmentalist Chris Baines will draw on a lifetime’s experience to discuss the potential for major infrastructure projects and policies to restore the natural integrity of both landscapes and seascapes. He will emphasise the value of a creative dialogue between industrial practitioners, policy makers and the general public. As a landscape architect and horticulturalist, he will discuss the scope for landscape recovery and habitat restoration at both a grand and a detailed level and he will refer to opportunities lost and gained through the UK’s High Speed Rail Links, renewable energy generation, and both urban and rural green infrastructure.
