Membership of UK Urban Ecology Forum

Members should have an active role in practice and/or research in Urban Ecology in the UK and be willing to play a role in advancing the frontiers of understanding and practice through the Forum. Members bring a wide range of experience, with experienced practitioners working together with those who are earlier on in their careers. All members are interested in pioneering new approaches. In considering new members, the Forum will:

  • Keep in mind the need for young people early in their careers as well as those who are experienced.
  • Seek inclusivity in all its aspects, particularly by taking account of the characteristics set out in the Equality Act 2010 that protects the rights of individuals and advances equality of opportunity for all.
  • Have members based in Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland that comprise at least 10% of the total membership for each of these three geographical areas because the Forum is a UK body that is a member of the Global Stakeholder Forum of UN Habitat.
  • Seek balanced representation from all Regions in England.

Candidates for membership of Forum must be proposed and seconded by an existing member. The candidate must provide the Forum with their CV together with a statement outlining the reasons for wanting to join the Forum and what experience and knowledge they can bring to the Forum. Applications will be put to members at a general meeting of the Forum for their formal approval. Membership of the Forum implies having an active participation in the affairs of the Forum.

Monitoring

The Chair and Honorary Secretary will monitor four targets for Forum membership. These will be reviewed at every Forum meeting to ensure definite actions are taken to achieve a diverse and inclusive membership. The four targets will be reviewed by 2025.

  • Members based in Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland should comprise at least 10% of the total membership for each of these three geographical areas by 2025.
  • Parity in members who identify as male and female.
  • BAME members should comprise at least 13% of the total membership (the UK population is around 13% BAME).
  • Balanced representation from all Regions in England.
