Royal Agricultural University CPRE Gloucestershire lecture David Levinson

 

24 July 2019

Dame Fiona Reynolds DBE, Master of Emmanuel College Cambridge and CPRE Gloucestershire Vice President will be giving the first joint RAU/CPRE Gloucestershire lecture at 6pm on 18th September in the Parkinson Lecture Theatre at the Royal Agricultural University in Cirencester.

The event will be followed by a drinks reception.

The 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. 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 national 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 former Environment Secretary, Michael Gove in 2018.  This Review is expected to report in the autumn.

There is no charge for the lecture and all are welcome.  If you would like to attend please RSVP to David Brooke, Acting Director, CPRE Gloucestershire – This email address is being protected from spambots.
