While nature can help us to adapt to climate change, the commonly labeled ‘nature based solutions’, should not go unchallenged. There are risks to advocating nature as a ‘solution’ to the climate crisis, including industry capture, greenwashing, land grabs and offsets. To continue the conversation in our movement about nature, this session will ask fundamental questions climate organisers need to face: What do we mean when we say ‘nature’s role in mitigation and adaptation’? Can we effectively outline safeguards, or principles, for nature based solutions that allow nature to be used as a tool for the climate? What are the risks and benefits of seeing nature in this way?
All events will take place on Zoom and we will email through the relevant links beforehand when you register. You can get help installing zoom here.
