World Environment Day: The Biodiversity Nexus

Calendar icon to

Biodiversity loss is at a rate 1,000 times greater than at any other time in recorded human history.

A destructive feedback loop between climate change, land-use planning, ocean acidification and the nitrogen cycle is creating unprecedented biodiversity loss. This is the Biodiversity Nexus. 

Saving species, ours included, means tackling all these challenges head on. 🩑

In this event, we will bring to you: 

  • Pioneering commitments that are driving environmental action with the City of Lahti, Raisio and Aalto University.
  • The socio-ecological drivers of biodiversity loss with the Finnish Environment Institute (SYKE).
  • An expert panel discussion on the role of tech, citizens and strategy.  
  • Four biodiverse solutions.
  • Desirable visions for the future with the Finnish National Commission on Sustainable Development.
  • Digital Networking with other change-makers. 

🩁 Come for 1 talk or stay for the day. Either way, we're excited to bring you many opportunities to learn and connect! đŸŒČ
