Environ 2016 will open to the public on the evening of Tuesday 22nd March with a lecture and discussion session on the topic of Natural Capital & Ecosystem Services entitled ‘Pricing the Planet’. The lecture will be delivered by the author and journalist Paddy Woodworth. Paddy has spent much of the last 12 years visiting diverse ecological restoration projects across the world, and assessing restoration as a global conservation strategy for his recently published book, 'Our Once and Future Planet: Restoring the World in the Climate Change Century' (University of Chicago Press). It was described as "timely...wonderful and full of hope" by John Feehan (Dublin Review of Books) and selected as an 'Outstanding Academic Title' of 2013 by Choice magazine. He contributes regularly to the new Environment Page in the Irish Times.
The event will be free and open to members of the public, local stakeholders, professionals and students and will commence at 8pm in the lecture theatre of the new Analog Devices Building in UL.
