Culturing Biodiversity: Restoring Ecosystems Webinar
Thursday October 10, 2019, 11:00 am - 12:00 pm
We are in the midst of catastrophic and dangerous loss of global biodiversity, ecosystems, and the millions of species with whom we share our planet and depend on for our survival. The ecological crisis is as critical as the climate crisis, but gets fewer headlines. We are “burning the library of life” through changes in land and sea use, direct exploitation of organisms (e.g. hunting and fishing), climate change, pollution, and the spread of invasive species.
What can the creative community do to help stop these forces? This webinar will look at how do the decisions we make in our organisations have an impact on ecosystems; how we we shift our work so we move beyond minimising impacts into understanding how we can restore nature and ecosystems, and connect with the deeper world we are all a part of: from what we buy, to what we programme and how we shout about it.
We are delighted to welcome guest speaker George Collum, Learning Producer, Somerset House Trust.
Delivered in partnership with Arts Council England as part of their Environmental Programme to National Portfolio Organisations 2018-22
