Our Next Event
Award-Winning Environmentalist, Tony Juniper talks about and signs his new book, What Nature Does for Britain
Tuesday 10 March 2015
‘Money is no object in this relief effort. Whatever money is needed, we will spend it.’ - Prime Minister David Cameron speaking to the media on 11 February 2014, the day the winter floods were declared a national emergency
Almost one year on from David Cameron’s now infamous pledge that ‘money’s no object’ in the flood relief effort, vast sums of money are still being wasted in areas ranging from flood defences to agriculture to health and water supply. The reason is because we often fail to appreciate the work being done by nature.
In What Nature Does for Britain, Tony Juniper reveals how nature sustains our health, wealth and security and illustrates how we do have the money to conserve and restore the natural systems we rely upon, if only it was spent in more rational and efficient ways. For example Juniper explains how we pay for our water three times. Once in tax-funded subsidies to farmers and landowners, a second time in our water bills (to remove chemicals coming from farms) and a third time in picking up the tab for repairing different kinds of environmental damage, including the effects of flooding – in part caused by eroded farmland soils clogging up river beds.
Tony Juniper began his career as an ornithologist, working with Birdlife International. From 1990 he worked at Friends of the Earth and was the organisation’s executive director from 2003-8 and was the Vice Chair of Friends of the Earth International from 2000-8.
Tickets are £4 and can be deducted from the cost of the paperback book (£9.99) if purchased on the evening.
