Building Beyond Borders – Talk Importance of biodiversity?
2 June @ 19:00 - 20:00Free
In this lecture Myriam Dumortier talks about the importance of biodiversity. Besides the climate crisis we are also heading for another, less known crisis: the loss of biodiversity. The vast majority of the people are already convinced of climate change and its impact. However, many people are insufficiently aware of the immense loss of biodiversity that we are now experiencing. It has been called the sixth mass extinction. Biodiversity has an enormous impact on all aspect of our lives: climate, agriculture, health, economy, nature… The more (bio)diverse an ecosystem is, the stronger it is. The opposite is also true: the fewer species, the weaker the ecosystem, the more likely it is to be affected by diseases, pests and disasters.
Duration: 1 hour (19:00 – 20:00)
