Climate Change & the 6th Mass Extinction: Why both need to be addressed together, 20th April 7.30-9pm

We’re pleased to invite you to join us for our next (virtual) speaker event, welcoming Professor Jim Harris on Wednesday 20th April at 7.30.

Jim will talk about how climate change and biodiversity loss have to be tackled at the same time, as part of the same problem. Restoring ecosystems in a holistic way is essential to maximising carbon capture and must not be seen in isolation.

“The UK itself is in the bottom 10% of biodiversity as a country – with about half of its biodiversity left – compared to the global average of 75%, which itself is nothing to celebrate”.

Jim is Professor of Environmental Technology at Cranfield University’s Soil and Agrifood Institute, and is passionate about these subjects. He’s a really engaging speaker and, as always, there will be time for questions at the end.
More about him HERE.  

One of his Cranfield University blogs from last year will give you a flavour of what he’ll be talking about: 

To be able to join us on the 20th, you’ll need to register free with Eventbrite in advance HERE to get the zoom link emailed to you before the event. (If you only register 10 minutes before the start time, we unfortunately can’t guarantee you will get the zoom link sent). 

As always, BCCF welcomes everyone so feel free to share the Eventbrite registration link. Our events are free but any donations are appreciated as they help us to continue to run varied events.
