Our keynote Dan Kraus is The Nature Conservancy of Canada’s National Conservation Biologist. Dan has worked on conservation planning, habitat management, climate change, freshwater conservation, natural capital, biodiversity indictors and more. Here's a little taste of Dan's presentation:
A Survival Guide to the Anthropocene: How nature and people could prosper in the 21st century
We are living in a time that has been called the Anthropocene because of the lasting impact modern human societies are having on the planet. Global issues such as climate change and extinction of wildlife can seem complex and even too overwhelming to solve. While there are new and significant challenges facing our planet, we are also on the edge of a transformation that could benefit nature and people for generations to come. Dan’s presentation will explore our current environmental issues from a global and national perspective, the critical role of community actions, and why we should have hope for the future.
