Prospect Webinar: Nature v Business?

Date: 9th September 2020

Nature v Business was a virtual event hosted by Prospect Magazine with the kind support of Calouste Gulbenkian Foundation, UK Branch. Arising from the pandemic, it brought together journalists to discuss the need for a new reporting paradigm about the importance of protecting nature in economic recovery. During the first months of the pandemic, research showed that people across the world embraced nature and understood that we have lost balance with the natural world. More recently, it has identified an emerging narrative that deliberately decouples planetary health from economic recovery. The panel of journalists discussed the current reporting environment and the need for change.
