OVERVIEW

Conservation Everywhere: Sustaining Natural and Cultural Diversity will explore connections between biological diversity and human cultures and examine preservation across the whole range of environmental contexts: from forests and oceans to cities and farms.

This year’s conference will raise awareness of the many frontiers of environmental action, including but beyond traditional wilderness areas: in neighborhoods and communities, in forward-thinking business models, and in sustainable urban areas.

This one-day event will feature appearances by renowned primatologist Jane Goodall, marine conservation advocate and filmmaker Céline Cousteau, Kohl’s Senior Executive Vice President Ken Bonning, Nelson Institute director Paul Robbins, and a variety of other speakers, panelists, exhibits and activities.
