Unfortunately it's a little bit late notice but this only arrived in my inbox today. May be of interest to London & home county herp types.

London's Environment and Future at The Natural History Museum, 1st November 2004.

Objectives
Following on from two successful LEAF meetings organised by Lord Julian Hunt at University College London in Sept 2002 and by Professor David Goode, Greater London Authority in Nov 2003, the conference seeks to address key recommendations highlighted in LEAF 2 held at GLA. The value of biodiversity to London's economy will be highlighted and particularly the need to properly audit and understand biodiversity in relation to social and economic values. The meeting aims to enhance networking with all stakeholders with an interest in Biodiversity, Environmental Quality and Sustainable Development.

Audience
Policy makers, private sector, innovators, stakeholders academics, schools, consultants, amateur naturalists and indeed anyone who is working to improve London's environment from a health, living, amenity and leisure perspectives.

Deliverables
A series of break-out group sessions seek to address the practical policies necessary to achieve the conference goals. Summary points will be circulated to the Mayor of London, Greater London Authority representatives responsible for the various plans, key DEFRA, and other key stakeholders and also placed on www.

Biodiversity helps make London one of the most pleasant world cities and a key measure of the state of London's environment and the quality of life of its inhabitants. Londoners are fortunate to be living in one of the greenest cities in the world supporting a remarkable diversity of wildlife adding greatly to peoples enjoyment of London and also help promote tourism essential for London's economy. However, we must not be complacent. The meeting is especially timely in view of recent unusual climatic conditions leading to an impact on environmental quality.

I am delighted the Deputy of Mayor of London, Nicky Gavron has kindly agreed to launch the meeting and present the opening speech.
