Special Speaker: Georgina Mace, PhD, FRS, CBE
Accounting for Nature: Past, Present and Future
November 13, 2014
5:30 - 7:30 p.m.
Professor Georgina Mace is director of the Centre for Biodiversity and Environment Research at University College London. Mace will discuss the irreplaceable benefits people gain from nature such as clean water, productive soils, an equable climate, aesthetics and health. Rapid changes jeopardize many of these benefits, and Mace will offer an approach to understanding and reacting to these trends, and to bringing nature's benefits closer to everyday planning for people, businesses and governments.
