Royal Agricultural University CPRE Gloucestershire lecture David Levinson

30th March 2019

Dame Fiona Reynolds DBE will be giving the first joint RAU/CPRE Gloucestershire lecture at 6pm on 18th September at the Royal Agricultural University in Cirencester.

Her lecture, entitled 'The Fight for Beauty', will build on the views expressed in her book 'The Fight for Beauty; Our Path to a Better Future' published in 2017. This has made a considerable impact in drawing attention to the importance of our countryside and our need to protect it.

Dame Fiona is a well-known champion of rural England. Currently Master of Emmanuel College, Cambridge, she was formerly Director General of the National Trust and has been Secretary of the Campaign for National Parks. And she is a former Director of CPRE.

Among a range of other roles, Dame Fiona is currently a member of the Glover Review of National Parks and Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty commissioned by Environment Secretary, Michael Gove in 2018. This Review is due to report in the Autumn.

All are welcome.
