The Hancock Talk: Why have we failed to protect nature?

Friday 1 November 2019.

With Dr Niki Rust, Newcastle University

This talk will examine why humans have spectacularly failed to protect biodiversity and how we, as a species, can do things differently? Dr Niki Rust believes that one of the keys to solving the biodiversity crisis is through better communications – to activate and reignite the fire that we, as humans, all have inside ourselves to innately understand the important connections between nature and humanity. Niki will reflect on the climate agenda and suggest ways that we can learn from this to encourage not only a climate emergency movement but also an ecological emergency movement.
