Modern methods of conservation involve putting a price tag on nature and the services it provides to us. But is this the only way to conserve nature in a modern and material world, or is it the first step towards its exploitation and destruction?

The Grantham Centre for Sustainable Futures, SIID and the Green Economy Network hosted a seminar where four experts shared the latest thinking on one of the biggest and most relevant questions in the conservation of nature. Dan Brockington, chaired the panel, alongside:

Bill Adams –  Professor of Conservation, The University of Cambridge
Owen Hewlett – Chief Technical Officer, The Gold Standard
Lorraine Maltby – Professor of Environmental Biology

Over 220 members of the public and university colleagues attend the event. If you missed it, catch up on the conversation with this digital timeline.
