Join us online for an expert-led discussion on the role of nature-based solutions in the mitigation of climate change, biodiversity loss and environmental pollution.
Climate change, the catastrophic loss of biodiversity and environmental pollution are some of the most significant challenges facing society and will shape the future of the planet.
Nature-based solutions involve working with biodiversity and natural processes to address these challenges. By design, nature-based solutions support and enhance human well-being and help to conserve biodiversity whilst respecting the rights and values of people in local communities.
Solutions that work may come from unexpected sources, integrating knowledge from not just biology, environmental science and ecology, but also the expertise of economists, social scientists, lawyers and archaeologists. They are also co-developed with local and Indigenous peoples to ensure that their knowledge is included and valued.
Join us for this free online event to hear about the latest thinking on the role of nature-based solutions to climate change, biodiversity loss and pollution and put your questions to our panel of experts.
