Making a new contract with nature in 2021- Green Economics Institute Biodiversity Summit

Preparing for the United Nations Biodiversity Conference Conference of Parties (COP15) the Convention on Biological Diversity (COP15) 16.00-20.00- PM UK time

Biodiversity- the big new story in 2021. Stopping the 6th Ever Mass extinction of species, creating diversity and inclusion in nature.

It is well known that expert opinion points to our maltreatment of nature as the leading cause of most pandemics in history including the current one. However with our renewed industrialisation of food, this time its bigger and different and more deeply engrained in our economics and food and agriculture systems.

Our utter lack of respect of nature has meant we have now managed to wipe out a large percentage of insects and other animals and this presents a real and present danger to us.

How did we do something so catastrophic, how did we not even notice it happening and how on earth can we turn this round and move forward into an age of caring and sharing the planet with our neighbours.

The United Nations is running 2 major conferences this year which will address some of this. The IPBES has issued a number of incredibly important benchmark reports as has the IPCC and the UNFCCC. One of these will be in May in China

. We take you through what they mean and what initiatives are out there to help us through and how you personally can get involved and do something about this, for your own sake and for future generations.

The green economics institute has always taken a lead in warning that this was happening- we are very sad that we were correct - now come and find out how it all works and what you can do.

Making a new contract with nature and the biocene.
