BiodiverseCity Summit at the Global Climate Action Summit
Monday, September 10, 2018, 1-8 PM
Fisher Bay Observatory Gallery & Terrace, Exploratorium, Pier 15
The climate crisis is rivaled by the global biodiversity crisis. The solutions to both are interdependent. Cities have, in large part, generated the climate and biodiversity crisis. Now, not only are they looked upon to find climate solutions, but they’re increasingly recognized as critical players for global species and ecosystem conservation and restoration. Since over half of the human population lives in cities, restoring urban biodiversity is critical for connecting everyone to nature where they live, and of course fundamental for climate resilience!
Join the global environmental community in sharing urban nature conservation best practices and the latest thinking from San Francisco and other pioneering cities in the effort to achieve sustainable urban biodiversity and climate resilience. The BiodiverseCity Summit is free, open to the public and features panel discussions, short talks, keynote speakers and more.
