Upcoming Events

Our events bring people together to allow them the time and space to think through new problems. We run our events both online and in-person, and make use of tools such as MS Teams, Zoom and Slido to ensure the best experience. We try to keep things interactive whether they are online or in person sessions so bring your questions and your creativity!

Booking tickets via Eventbrite

A few people are getting frustrated when booking tickets for events very late (sometimes even after they have started). For reasons we needn't go into just now, we are not using the automatic integration of Eventbrite and Zoom. This means that shortly before the event a human from the PAS team will send you your link. This will be coming from an @local.gov.uk email address.

Shortly before the event starts our team will usually will be mucking in with the event and will not see any late orders. So - please book tickets at least a day in advance if you want to be sure of a place.

Local Authority Draft Nature Recovery Toolkit In-Person Roadshow Events 

PAS is holding three regional in-person roadshow events in March for local authority officers to find out more about the draft nature recovery toolkit we’ve been developing, the resources that have been produced so far and how to use them. The toolkit is constantly evolving so we are keen to hear about your council’s own nature recovery ambitions and progress to date to inform further development and improvement.

These all day events are taking place in Manchester on 12th March, Birmingham on 14th March and London on 21st March. Numbers at each event will be capped at 25 and will be restricted to one officer per local authority.

Choose from one of three in person regional events by clicking on the links:
•    Manchester on Tuesday 12th March 10-4pm 
•    Birmingham on Thursday 14th March 10-4pm 
•    London on Thursday 21st March 10-4pm
