The Natural Capital Initiative are proud to host our second ‘Valuing our Life Support Systems’ natural capital summit on 6th & 7th November 2014, held at the British Library in London.
Since our launch summit in 2009, a growing number of influential activities have emerged across all sectors within the natural capital space – from networks to research programmes, committees to coalitions. This emerging hive of activity is testament to the traction the natural capital concept has gained with a variety of audiences.
The summit will:
- Derive a common understanding of what natural capital really means
- Understand in plain language the natural and social science behind it
- Find and demonstrate ways in which sectors and initiatives can work, and are working, together to apply it
- Identify ways of ensuring that practical responses have scientific rigour
- Communicate recommendations for ways forward across the sectors.
This summit is for:
Academics – wanting to maximise the impact of their research in this area, and to identify new research priorities
Policy makers – wanting to develop policies that enable better accounting for our natural capital in government and business activity
Business – particularly businesses whose risks and products are particularly dependent on natural resources and systems
Civil Society – for charities that work to protect natural resources and promote better care for our natural environment
