Multidisciplinary Research Seminar in celebration of the United Nations World Environment Day

Wallasea Island Wild Coast project is a landmark conservation and engineering scheme for the 21st century, on a scale never before attempted in the UK and the largest of its type in Europe. The project will receive 4.5million tonnes of material excavated during the Crossrail operations in London to help shape Europe’s largest man-made nature reserve.

Wine & nibbles will be served at 16:00 and the event will also include an art exhibition in celebration of the United Nations World Environment Day.

All staff, students, local teachers, community groups and the wider public are welcome to attend this free celebration.
