Speaker Series DC: Kevin Green, Rare

November 28, 2017

Ever notice that almost all environment and sustainability challenges – from climate change to overfishing to biodiversity loss – share one thing in common? In order to solve them, people have to start behaving differently. But people are complicated social and emotional animals, and in our quest to solve big, hairy environmental challenges, we often oversimplify the most important part: people. This is true of biodiversity loss as much as any other challenge in the Anthropocene. In spite of all the compelling reasons to protect biodiversity for own well-being, we are still facing the “sixth extinction.” In this discussion, Kevin Green of Rare will talk about why the same strange features of our uniquely human psychology that have gotten us into this mess are the key to getting us out.
