Nature exhibition

Putting a Price on Nature

Thursday 6th November 2014 - 10:00

One of the biggest challenges facing environmental scientists is how to advise the government on the best way to manage the supply of our natural resources. The natural world and its ecosystems are important to our wellbeing and economic prosperity. Yet they have been consistently undervalued in conventional economic analyses and decision making. Research conducted by the University of East Anglia can tell us more about these issues and show how we can find the true value of natural environments, such as the Norfolk Broads or Thetford Forest.

Exhibitions, talks and interactive demonstrations across two days (6 and 8 November) will explore the questions ‘what does nature do for me?’ and ‘what is nature worth?’. At this event, economists and geographers will illustrate the interconnection between modern lifestyles and the natural environment using a range of information technologies. You will be able to take a virtual tour over Norfolk, talk to the experts and add to the exhibition through writing and drawing. At this event on Thursday evening, you can to take part in a one-off lively discussion with university professors and conservation groups.

This exciting event will be an opportunity for the general public to experience first-hand the innovative techniques used to communicate the benefits we receive from nature. Visitors will be invited to take part in interactive demonstrations designed to showcase cutting-edge information technologies such as 3D visualisation and virtual tours.

This event is free and open to all; however places are limited for the discussion on Thursday evening and for the Saturday events. Light refreshments will be provided.

The exhibition will take place from 10.00 until 16.00. The discussion in the auditorium will start at 17.30.
