The Wales Policy Group launched in 2015, with the aim of bringing scientists and policymakers together to discuss environmental policy in Wales.

In 2017, the WPG aims to run two events and six newsletters, and develop an online discussion forum, with future plans to run training workshops, write consultation responses, or take forward other ideas from group members.

The group is chaired by Dr Angela Watkins, Evidence Advisor for Natural Resources at the Welsh Government, and Dr Eleanor Kean, Research Associate at Cardiff University. Contact Eleanor Kean to find out more about the group.

If you are a BES member based in Wales, and are interested in getting involved, or read the newsletter.
