Green Halo Partnership Launch
The Green Halo Partnership was launched on 22 November at Ordnance Survey’s offices in Southampton.
Almost 100 people attended to discuss the opportunities the Partnership offers, representing over 50 different organisations from across the public and private sectors.
Alison Barnes from the New Forest National Park outlined work done since the first Green Halo conference in July 2016 to help us understand how natural capital can help us tackle the big economic, environmental and societal challenges our communities face.
The Partnership brings sectors together to explore practical ways of using a ‘natural capital’ approach.
- Natural England’s Chief Operating Officer Guy Thompson on the national context
- Southern Water Catchment Strategy Officer Kate Rice on investing in natural capital – taking a river ‘catchment first’ approach to protecting the environment and supporting sustainable economic growth.
- Geovation Co-founder and Challenge Manager at Ordnance Survey Chris Parker on the Geovation Challenge.
