Fundatia ADEPT has the pleasure of inviting you to a lunchtime lecture
Transylvania: Land of nature and living tradition
John Akeroyd

Wednesday, 4 November 12:00 – 14:00 
at the Romanian Cultural Institute: 1, Belgrave Square, London SW1X 8PH
Tickets: £20 (including light lunch)
The lecture will begin at 12.15 and will be followed by a light lunch at 13.15.

Dr John Akeroyd is botanical consultant to Fundatia ADEPT. He has visited Romania regularly since 2000, and is now a leading proponent of how holistic conservation, centred on farming communities and combining tradition with innovation, can help to protect Transylvania, one of Europe’s most significant cultural landscapes. In his talk he will describe the astonishing wildflower meadows and other natural riches of a special region, and show that historically it was a centre of culture, creativity and wealth, based on nature’s resources. There is no reason why Transylvania, presently emerging from a period of rural economic decline, should not regain its former prosperity – and conserve what HRH The Prince of Wales calls “Romania’s remarkable agrarian heritage”.
