SWEEP Expo is a three day series of events for all those with an interest in the natural environment, and how it can be protected and enhanced whilst also producing gains for business, government and society.
Over the three days, attendees can select from a range of themed sessions focusing on Natural Capital approaches for marine, land, coastal change and whole-catchment settings.
We will be sharing the results and successes of SWEEP to date, as well as giving the opportunity to input into future activity, through a series of presentations, workshops and demonstrations from the SWEEP team and our partners.
