As the climate crisis deepens, we are becoming more aware of just how badly we have failed to respect our most precious asset: nature. We depend entirely on it for our food, our air, our water and our shelter, and yet, we have been neglecting and exploiting nature for decades, even centuries. Nature-based solutions (NbS) promise to redress the balance by restoring habitats and ecosystems. In doing so, we can tackle the biodiversity crisis, meet our climate targets, adapt to flood and drought and improve public health and wellbeing, all at comparably low-cost. One of New Zealand's advantages are the strengths of our natural systems including the primary sector that is at the heart of our traditional economy. But tradition has proved detrimental to the environment and throws into doubt our social license to operate which is why regenerative models agriculture and forestry underpin solutions and enable stewardship of the environment, profitability and positive social outcomes. Join us for a series of conversations with farmers, foresters, scientists, entrepreneurs and business leaders to explore the opportunities for regeneration in the New Zealand setting, the role of market mechanisms, funding models, soil science, near to nature forestry, urban agriculture and native forests, systems-thinking and more.
