The Fens are in trouble. The area is key for UK food production but draining the soil has exposed peat to the air so it is now a UK hot spot for carbon emissions. Plus the loss of carbon from the soil reduces fertility, and increases the likelihood of flooding. Fixing the emissions and improving biodiversity while still producing food is hard. Professor Shailaja Fennell will give a talk on the Fenland Regeneration Programme (Not the Great Fen Project) that is working with communities to develop solutions. It takes place on Thursday 2 November 2023 starting at 19:30 hrs.
