21st Century Challenges (www.21stCenturyChallenges.org) will hold a live discussion event at the Royal Geographical Society in LondonĀ on 3 March 2010 at 7 pm on the issue of NIMBYism in the UK.

For context, please note that some 85 percent of Britons oppose more development in their local communities, making Britain even more NIMBY than the USA or Canada, according to the UK Saint Index.

Julian Glover, chief leader writer of The Guardian newspaper, will chair the panel discussion, which includes: Dame Fiona Reynolds, director-general of the National Trust, Antony Oliver, editor of New Civil Engineer, and Jim Steer, a leading authority on transport.
