Event description
This lecture will consider the continuing decline in biodiversity and what we all might do to limit the damaging impacts of human activity.

About this Event

Since 2000 a number of major assessments of the state of the global environment have been undertaken by The United Nations. The latest assessment has focused on identifying recent changes in biodiversity and has revealed some major declines in a whole range of marine and terrestrial species.

Geographical ideas have been at the heart of these assessments and have revealed how society is dependent on the benefits we get from nature whilst at the same time human activity is rapidly degrading key parts of the natural environment on which we depend.

This lecture will outline the findings of the latest UN assessments completed by the Intergovernmental Science-Policy Platform on Biodiversity and Ecosystem Services (IPBES) in 2018 and 2019.

It will consider what politicians, business and all of us might do to limit the damaging impacts of human society on nature.
