To conserve enough nature in the right places is urgently needed to meet the challenges of biodiversity loss and climate emergency. This episode explores the key solution pathways for protecting 50% of the planet along with how we can rise to this challenge and accelerate the pace of progress.
#OvercomingOvershoot takes a deep look at the myriad symptoms of ecological overshoot by way of thoughtful conversations with experts and visionaries exploring not only what’s going wrong but also what solution pathways are available to overcome overshoot. Moderated by eco-rockstar, Gary Wockner, this show will serve as an essential hub to connect people from around the world on this most pressing concern.
Our population has expanded explosively over the past few centuries, now seven times greater than it was prior to the Industrial Revolution. As it continues to grow, so does the concern of scholars and activists for the future of our children. Join us as we take a holistic view on this issue from all angles in a collective effort to protect life as we know it on Earth.
