Key facts

Genre: Event with live subtitles


Join our panel at the Eden Project to discover how human activity affects the variety of life on Earth.

Broadcaster Gillian Burke hosts a discussion to get to the bottom of your questions about biodiversity, what it means and why it’s so vital to have variety in species.

Recent studies have shown that the populations of mammals, birds, fish, reptiles and amphibians have declined by 60% since 1970 and a fifth of the Amazon has disappeared in just 50 years. In the UK, the abundance of wildlife is falling, with the steepest losses happening in the last 10 years.

What do these losses mean for humanity? What are the benefits of restoring nature and biodiversity? How can human societies flourish alongside thriving natural ecosystems?

Get involved by submitting your question to the panel when registering.

This event is part of You and the Planet, a series exploring global environmental issues with world-renowned speakers from science, business, politics and more.

Watch the series live on YouTube and join the conversation at #YouAndThePlanet.
