Speaker:   John Hodgson

Lake District National Park Authority


Location:  Percival Theatre,

Ambleside University campus, Rydal Road, Ambleside



In February 2016 the UK Government's bid for the Lake District to become a UNESCO World Heritage site was submitted. The bid is currently being evaluated and the decision is expected in July 2017. John played a leading role in writing the bid and will describe the process and the benefits that worldwide recognition such status will provide to the area and the people who live here.
