Many have argued that the idea of Englishness is bound up with ideas of landscape and countryside that are backward looking, nostalgic and have little relevance to the future.

In contrast, Ruth Davis, a leading figure in the green movement, argues that understanding the deep connections between ourselves, where we live and our environment are key to mobilising popular support for sustainability and tackling climate change.

Speaker Biography:
Ruth Davis has been Director of Greenpeace, an environmental consultant, and is currently Head of Policy at the RSPB.
