WHO DECIDES WHAT NATURE IS?
We typically view the world through a lens that embodies a nature-culture dichotomy. This is a lens that has largely been shaped by a small number of men, in a short space of time. Nature for recreation, nature as a resource, nature for restoration. But what happens if we adjust the lens and look at the world in a more inclusive way? If we link environmental and social change to acknowledge and amplify the voices of women? How does this change how we value and interact with nature?
Through SDG 13, with Climate Action and with the UN ‘decade of restoration’ upon us, the pressure is mounting for humanity to prevent, halt and reverse ecosystem degradation. These are critical tools to combat climate change. At Wildeor, working under a mission of ‘bringing nature back to life’, we are tackling the nature-culture dichotomy head-on to connect people with the natural world.
In this session, we will use the concept of rewilding to consider how nature conservation can be as much a cultural pursuit as an ecological one. We will demonstrate how gender inclusion is essential to delivering impact on climate change and why investors should look to rewilding to take decisive action.
Impact for Breakfast is pleased to welcome Dr Gina Maffey to lead this important discussion in the fight against climate change.
