Can New Environmentalism Save the World from Itself? Strange Bedfellows and a “Big Tent”

Peter Kareiva

It is hard to find people who want to ravage the environment or destroy nature. Yet, somehow, people who promote conservation are on the defensive, according to Peter Kareiva. One solution, he suggests, is to make it clear that conservation is for everyone, to search for bright spots of natural resilience, to avoid the doom-and-gloom perception bias, to embrace the potential for recovery or restoration, and to be comfortable with the realization that nature never stands still. He will discuss how new messages, new science, and new alliances are conservation’s best hope.
