The ecological crisis is as critical as the climate crisis, but gets fewer headlines. We are in the midst of catastrophic loss of global biodiversity, ecosystems, and the millions of species with whom we share our planet and depend on for our survival. 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.
So what can the creative community do to help stop these forces? This webinar looks at how the decisions we make in our organisations have an impact on ecosystems – and how we can move, urgently, towards their restoration. Featuring JB’s Chiara Badiali and Becky Hazlewood, and 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.
