BIG Biodiversity Challenge 2021: hints and tips for success

The BIG Biodiversity Challenge and Awards 2021 is now open for entries. This webinar will provide valuable hints and tips to anyone considering submitting an entry.

The BIG Biodiversity Challenge and Awards celebrate the contributions of the construction industry towards biodiversity. The challenge to ‘Do One Thing’ invites the industry to add at least one new biodiversity enhancement – big or small – to a building site, development or existing structure.

Join us at this lunchtime webinar to hear from Hannah Bilston, a member of the 2019 Judging Panel, as she shares some useful hints and tips on what the judges expect and the common pitfalls to avoid.
