Environment Analyst invites you to their event

Social Value of Nature Recovery: Safeguarding our Future

About this event

The Dasgupta Review made clear that our economics are embedded in nature, not external to them. It is an economic imperative therefore that we invest in nature recovery and reverse the alarming trend of nature loss. By the same token, there is a growing body of evidence demonstrating the link between the natural environment and our individual and community health and wellbeing.

In this Sustainability Delivery Group Expert Talk we will apply a social value lens to nature recovery, looking at the myriad ways that nature recovery generates value for society and how this might be leveraged to come up with innovative solutions for funding, finance and delivery.
