London Met rewilding expert to take part in panel to help cities go greener and healthier, by going pesticide-free.
Date: 21 June 2021
London Met’s Senior Lecturer in sustainable design and urban biodiversity Sian Moxon will be speaking at an event as part of the Reassembling Our Cities initiative run by Pesticide Action Network UK.
She will be on a panel entitled Abundant Green Networks: Reimagining our Urban Space, alongside environmental justice activist and founder of Nature is a Human Right and Dream Green, Ellen Miles, and barrister and founder of Lawyers for Nature, Paul Powlesland.
Pesticide Action Network UK explains, "In order to be greener, healthier and wilder, our cities need to be pesticide-free. But there is no easy single replacement for a weed killer or insecticide.
"Rather, each city or community needs to develop a patchwork of solutions to adapt to their own diverse needs. A holistic approach is the only solution to creating safe, green spaces in which people and wildlife can thrive."
The event will take place online on 21 July 2021, 7-8pm. Free spaces are available on Eventbrite.
