Biocultural Heritage in the UK – Report Launch

Thursday 2 September 2021

Online

We are delighted to invite you to the online launch of our research report on Biocultural Heritage in the UK.

‘Biocultural heritage’ recognises the links between biodiversity, cultural heritage and the sustainable development of local communities. The idea has been put into practice in various parts of the world to help deliver nature conservation and sustainable land use and to support people’s livelihoods and protect their human rights.

The approach has rarely been applied in the UK and the research explored how international learning about biocultural heritage might help to inform more inclusive, just and sustainable conservation policies and practices across the four UK countries.

The research was undertaken by Zoe Russell – a PhD Candidate at the University of Stirling – as part of an internship at Inherit (the Institute for Heritage & Sustainable Human Development). It was funded by the Scottish Graduate School of Social Science.

About the Event

The report will be published on the Inherit website on 2nd September 2021 (www.inherit-institute.org). This launch event will include a presentation of the main findings, discussion by an expert panel, and an opportunity for audience questions.

The event is free to attend and will be held online using Zoom (a link will be sent out once you have registered on Eventbrite).

We invite anyone with an interest in nature conservation, cultural heritage, and community development to take part.
