Audio Special: The War On Nature


With chaos in government and key green policies under threat, Beccy Speight (CEO, RSPB) and Craig Bennett (CEO, The Wildlife Trusts) join Niki Roach and Al Chisholm (CIWEM Director of Policy) for a special episode on the ‘War On Nature’, providing reaction and comment right from the top of the environmental sector.


The short-lived Truss government’s push for growth at all costs sent shockwaves through the environmental sector as green policies were abandoned, reversed or shelved… potentially leaving UK nature in crisis. In this special episode of Planet Possible, host Niki Roach is joined by two sector heavyweights and key players in the coalition of environmental organisations that spoke up in opposition to the so-called ‘War On Nature’ and mobilised – Beccy Speight, CEO of the RSPB and Craig Bennett, CEO of The Wildlife Trusts. CIWEM’s Director Of Policy Al Chisholm is also on hand providing industry context to set up the key theme of the discussion – what happens next?
