What does the future hold for biodiversity on our planet over the coming century? And what does this mean for human society and prosperity? In the third event in the series, we explore the current threats to nature and try to understand what the world will look like in 2050. In particular, we consider the impacts of invasive species and climate change on the future of biodiversity. We will combine perspectives from biology and economics to explore possible future scenarios, explaining some of the ways that future predictions are made, debating the degree of confidence we can have, and exploring different strategies that may be used to ensure that the many services provided to us by biodiversity are maintained into the foreseeable future.
