The Natural Capital Project invites you to join the 2017 Natural Capital Symposium at Stanford University from March 20-23, 2017. Featuring keynote speakers Carter Roberts, President and CEO of World Wildlife Fund, and Mark Tercek, President and CEO of The Nature Conservancy, this event is a major convening of leaders advancing the science and practice of incorporating nature’s diverse values into decisions. Interactive sessions throughout the symposium will focus on five central themes: sustainable development planning, securing freshwater, fostering resilient coastal communities, developing sustainable cities, and creating standards for the private sector.
Last year’s symposium drew nearly 300 people from 32 countries, representing universities, NGOs, businesses, governments, and other institutions. Over 100 presenters talked about advances in the science, the development of tools, and how natural capital understanding is being used to inform decisions around the world. You can read more about the 2017 Natural Capital Symposium on the website, and you can register online here. Please come join in — this event is a chance to exchange ideas, swap stories, advance science, and spend time with thought-leaders and practitioners accounting for nature’s contributions to society to make smarter decisions for a more sustainable future.
