Inaugural Lecture by Mark Reed (IUCN Research Manager)

Date: 10 Jul 2014

In this talk Prof Mark Reed, who is also the IUCN UK Peatland Programme's Research Manager, challenges us to look differently at Britain's most overlooked landscape.

He uses science, poetry, music and award-winning photography to explain why all of our lives literally depend on a place that most of us actively avoid ever visiting. In doing this, he examines how we and our decision-makers have come to know about a huge threat to this place, and how we need a new way of thinking if we are to solve this and many of the other major environmental challenges that the world faces today.
