Thought leaders in biodiversity: Building hope for the future

06 Nov 2020

As the world gets further entangled in a web of concurrent and interrelated crises (biodiversity loss, climate change, food insecurity, global inequality and COVID-19, to name a few), it can be difficult to step back, think holistically and prioritise what’s needed most. In the lead-up to the 2020 Biodiversity Digital Conference, GLF scouted out the experts and ‘thought leaders’ doing just that. Join them here as they share their visions on the global stage, spark hope for the health and future of our planet and provide key insight on nature-based solutions and biodiversity-related themes such as Indigenous leadership, crop diversity and sustainable finance.
