Reforestation is hailed as crucial for tackling climate change. Yet deforestation continues at an alarming rate fuelled by global markets with more than 3.6 million hectares of primary rainforest, an area the size of Belgium, cut down in 2018. Professor Sir Ghillean Prance will give an insight into the magic of the Amazon rainforest from his years in the jungle, share why forests are so important and highlight how we can all play a positive role in securing their future.
