The Case for Nature: Balancing the Head and the Heart
inClimate & Sustainability, Insights, Past Events
To tackle the twin biodiversity and climate crises, we will need to reimagine our relationship with nature. Join Siddarth Shrikanth, Henry Mance and Melanie Challenger, three nature authors and thinkers, who will bring their varied perspectives to this timely debate.
Presented in collaboration with the Financial Times.
Part of the answer lies in valuing the services that nature provides us, and making the economic case for individuals, governments or businesses to halt destruction and invest in restoration instead. But alongside that economic imperative lies a deeper, intrinsic one that requires philosophical and moral reflection from all of us.
Siddarth Shrikanth is the author of The Case for Nature. Siddarth grew up in India and studied conservation biology at Oxford. He worked in corporate sustainability for McKinsey and was a journalist at the Financial Times in Hong Kong before gaining a joint MPA/MBA from the Harvard Kennedy School and Stanford’s Graduate School of Business. He now lives in London and works in climate and nature investing.
Henry Mance is the chief features writer at the Financial Times, and author of the book How to Love Animals and Protect our Planet. He is passionate about rethinking our relationship with other species, especially in terms of what we eat and how we protect ecosystems. Before joining the FT in 2010, he was a policy researcher at a biodiversity thinktank in Colombia.
