4th May (Tues)
BFoE Monthly Meeting 7.30pm. Craig Bennett, CEO of the Wildlife Trust and former CEO of Friends of the Earth.
'Why the 2020s could and should be the decade for nature's recovery'
In this talk Craig will explore what might this look like in practice. How might it happen, at the local, UK and global scale? What might the benefits be for our economy, our health and wellbeing. And how does it fit with the story of human progress?
It's no longer good enough just to talk about the protection and conservation of nature when, particularly in countries like the UK, so much of our nature has already been severely depleted. We need to stop and reverse the decline of nature and put nature in recovery. And we need to do this at pace and at scale if we're going to have any hope of tackling the climate and ecological emergency. In this talk Craig will explore what might this look like in practice. How might it happen, at the local, UK and global scale? What might the benefits be for our economy, our health and wellbeing. And how does it fit with the story of human progress?
