Work with Norfolk communities on freshwater habitats

Carl Sayer is UCL Engager of the Year

UCL’s Main Quad was recently the setting for the sixth annual Provost’s Awards for Public Engagement, recognising work by UCL staff and students in engaging with the public.

Congratulations to Dr Carl Sayer, UCL Geography, who received the award of “Engager of the Year” from the UCL President & Provost, Professor Michael Arthur.

Carl has been heavily involved in public engagement for his entire career. He has always been passionate that key knowledge about how to conserve the natural environment is held by local people who have a close association with the land.

Carl’s activities have included founding the River Glaven Conservation Group, a local voluntary conservation group composed of fisherman, landowners, natural historians and interested members of the public committed to conserving aquatic habitats in the River Glaven catchment, North Norfolk.

He has also led several community-based projects centred on aquatic conservation in Norfolk, including workshops and practical restoration events. This culminated in the establishment of the Norfolk Ponds Project (NPP) in summer 2014

Carl’s natural talent to engage local people has benefited aquatic conservation work in Norfolk and across the UK.
