The National Biodiversity Network (NBN) is a collaborative partnership created to simplify the exchange of biodiversity information.

The Network comprises organisations from across the environmental sector including the statutory country agencies, national conservation organisations and charities, local and national recording schemes, local environmental records centres, local authorities, ecological consultancies, academia and individuals.

NBN Conference 2021

The NBN Trust, the charity which oversees and facilitates the development of the Network, runs an annual conference to bring people from across the Network together and many of the organisations mentioned above either attend the conference or are represented through the presentations on the day.

This year’s event is taking place online, using MS Teams, on Wednesday 24 November. Following the successful collaboration with the Open University and the iSpot team last year, we are delighted to be running this as a co-hosted event again in 2021.

The Conference will consist primarily of 10 minute talks plus Q&A, as well as a keynote presentation, given by Craig Bennett, Chief Executive Officer of The Wildlife Trusts and the annual Sir John Burnett Memorial Lecture, given by Professor Rosie Hails, Director of Nature and Science at The National Trust.

The announcement of the winners and runners up in the NBN Awards for Wildlife Recording will also be made at the end of the day.

The Conference will be of particular interest to those who are involved in the collection, sharing or use of biodiversity data as well as anyone who wants to find out more about the work of those involved in wildlife conservation and the environment within the Network. It will also be an opportunity to find out more about the new NBN Trust Strategy and the NBN Atlas, our wildlife data sharing platform.

Sadly, there won’t be an opportunity to have face to face conversations this year, but we will have a networking area and project videos from some of our NBN Trust members at the breaks, so you can still enjoy a (virtual) coffee with the other delegates! We hope to see you there.  and
