Oxford Long-Term Ecology Lab

Long-Term Ecology, Biodiversity Conservation, and Environmental Stewardship Technologies


We will be launching the Local Ecological Footprinting Tool (LEFT) on Friday 7th October in Oxford. This is the latest development phase of our web-based decision support tool for assessing risk in environmental management – https://www.left.ox.ac.uk/ (see brief details below) – previous iterations of which have already delivered critical benefits in business applications and academic research over the last four years.

Many of the people who have already used the Tool during its pre-launch free access period will be attending as well as land management consultants and academics who have not yet tried it out.

There will also be an opportunity of seeing how the tool works in detail, following the presentations, informally discussing the science behind it, and hearing how some of our industry partners have used it.

Our launch event marks the point at which the Tool’s commercial pricing will be announced, along with its parameters for free academic usage.

The event is also an opportunity for networking with people who share a need to minimise the environmental impacts of their business activities when they make decisions about how land is used.

The launch will take place from 5:00-6:30 on Friday 7th October at the Oxford Martin School, www.oxfordmartin.ox.ac.uk – 34 Broad St, Oxford OX1 3BD.
