at the British Library, 96 Euston Rd, London NW1 2DB
for academics, policy makers, businesses, charities and other public bodies
Natural Capital Innitiative

The Natural Capital Initiative will be hosting their second ever Valuing Our Life Support Systems event in London at the British Library on the 6-7 November 2014.

Since the launch summit in 2009 there has been a growing number of influential activities across all sectors within the natural capital space – from networks to research programmes, committees to coalitions.  This year they will once again bring together 250 influencers from across academia, policy, business, and civil society within this expanded community and beyond. They will assess gains made and further enable the valuing of natural capital in planning and decision-making based on sound science.

The event will consist of up to 20 working sessions where panellists and participants will engage in in-depth discussion on a vast selection of topics.

Speakers include:

  • Helen Dunn, Senior Economic Advisor, DEFRA; and seconded to Management Team of Natural Capital Coalition
  • Jonny Hughes, CEO, Scottish Wildlife Trust
  • Professor Georgina Mace, Professor of Biodiversity and Ecosystems and Director of the UCL Centre for Biodiversity and Environment Research (CBER).
  • Dr Pushpam Kumar, Chief, Ecosystem Services Economics Unit of Division of Environmental Policy Implementation (DEPI), United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP)
  • Professor Duncan Wingham
    Chief Executive, NERC
  • Peter Young, Chairman, Aldersgate Goup and Strategy Director, Jacobs
