This seminar will look at the importance of considering biodiversity when designing a site for glamping and other uses, and how aiming towards a ‘biodiversity net gain’ can help secure planning permission. It will also examine some of the beneficial effects that nature brings to the glamping experience, and how campsites can be places for raising environmental awareness and promoting mental wellbeing.
