Managing the Planet Panel Series at Avogadro's Number

Date: 
Wednesday, November 6, 2013 - 5:00pm to 6:30pm
Location: 

Avogadro's Number, 605 S. Mason Street

Throughout human history, societies have realized that they are critically dependent on the natural world. However, only recently have increasing population and human activities forced society and science to investigate and document the dramatic changes to the environment sustainability incurred by its use of ecosystems. As the impact of human activities has become clear, scientists have developed new technologies and fields of study aimed at relieving or reducing these disturbances. Ecosystems such as streams, rivers, inland and coastal wetlands, grasslands, and forests provide numerous services that fundamentally support human health and well-being. This panel will explore innovative science-based strategies that are socially and culturally acceptable to create, manage, and restore these ecosystems, ensuring that society has access to all these ecosystem services.
