Ian Convery, Professor of Environment & Society at the University of Cumbria, contributes to this event, along with Northumbria University academics Matthew Kelly, Professor of Modern History, Ysanne Holt, Professor of Arts and Visual Culture, Dr Mike Jeffries, Department of Geography & Environmental Sciences, and Northumberland Wildlife Trust's Heinz Traut. The event, organised by Tony Williams, Associate Professor of Creative Writing at Northumbria University, focuses on the Kielderhead Wildwood - a project (supported by the National Lottery Heritage Fund) to restore natural processes and rebuild healthy ecosystems in a remote area of land in Northumberland. Using local seed stock and planting in accordance with natural propagation patterns, the project is creating a landscape similar to the one that may have existed in the area many thousands of years ago. The habitat created will support a diverse range of flora and fauna, including woodland birds and water voles. In the long term, the site will allow recolonisation by missing species such as pine marten, black grouse and golden eagle, and the potential reintroduction of iconic species such as beaver.
