TU Distinguished Scientists Lecture: Gretchen Daily
October 25, 2018 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pmFree
Trinity’s Distinguished Scientists Lecture Series, in partnership with Trinity University Press, presents Gretchen C. Daily — Bing Professor of Environmental Science, Senior Fellow in the Stanford Woods Institute, Director of the Center for Conservation Biology, and co-founder and faculty director of the Natural Capital Project — with a lecture titled “A New Business Model for People and Nature”.
A powerful awakening is underway, to the value of trees, bees, and other elements of nature. In this engaging lecture, Gretchen Daily will describe a powerful, new approach to valuing nature – and the risks and devastating costs of its loss – through compelling stories from all over the world. The approach is being scaled by key governments, investors, businesses and communities, to accelerate a deep transformation to an ecological civilization. From coastal resilience to mental health, water security and livable cities, nature is key.
Gretchen will also discuss her books with photographer Charles Katz, Jr. – The Power of Trees and One Tree – Un Arbol Unico, both published by Trinity University Press.
Free and open to the public. Booking signing to follow.
The Trinity University Distinguished Scientists Lecture Series is made possible through an endowment gift from the Walter F. Brown Family of San Antonio.
