The UK Chartered Institute of Ecology and Environmental Management is now affiliated with SER Europe. A Memorandum of Understanding was signed in July. CIEEM promotes the highest standards of practice for the benefit of nature and society in the UK. This agreement will allow for reciprocal supporting, promoting and diffusing of SER Europe and CIEEM initiatives, including in the European policy arena, and increased collaboration between the two organisations. Thank you to the CIEEM Ecological Restoration and Habitat Creation Special Interest Group for initiating and facilitating this process. More information on CIEEM:
