SER 2015 – Towards Resilient Ecosystems: Restoring the Urban, the Rural and the Wild

The 6th World conference on Ecological Restoration will take place in Manchester, England, from the 23rd – 27th August 2015. The conference is aimed at individuals and organisations working in highly urbanised, ex-agricultural/industrial or natural environments. Scientific developments, issues and solutions will be discussed in conjunction with the cultural and educational aspects of restoration ecology. A number of workshops, oral presentations and study trips will take place throughout the week.

Manchester is considered as one of the homes of the industrial revolution and good practice examples from the city will be examined and discussed. The restoration of former industrial areas was judged as one of the strongest aspects of the successful application of Essen, Germany, to be the European Green Capital 2017.
