Why biodiversity matters | The Circular Economy Show

Our current linear economic system contributes to biodiversity loss. Why is that a problem? When biodiversity thrives, so does the economy.

The Foundation's Cindy Venho and Maya Adams talk about why biodiversity needs to be protected and how the circular economy can tackle biodiversity loss.
Thank you for watching this video. The Ellen MacArthur Foundation is a UK charity that develops and promotes the idea of a circular economy, which - driven by design, eliminates waste and pollution, circulates products and materials, and regenerates nature.

Regenerating nature in a circular economy

Powered by Restream https://restream.io/

The extractive and wasteful economic practices of today are at the heart of the destruction of biodiversity. Preserving and enhancing valuable natural resources and the ecosystems that are essential to a thriving and prosperous existence requires a rethink of how our economy operates. In this episode, we begin to explore how a circular economy helps to tackle the root causes of this global challenge creating new sources of value and regenerating nature.

Speakers featured:

Patrick Holden- Founding Director and Chief Executive of the Sustainable Food Trust
Luc Bas - European Regional Director for the International Union for the Conservation of Nature (IUCN)
Felipe Villela- Founder and COO of reNature
Hanneke Faber- President Global Foods & Refreshment & Member of the Unilever Executive team

One Earth: Integrating Climate Action & Biodiversity Conservation into a Blueprint
The vast biodiversity of our planet is the underlying fabric supporting all life on Earth, but the prognosis is grim: biodiversity rates are continuing to plummet as extinctions of species accelerate.

Fortunately, the evidence suggests that there are in fact viable pathways for successful action at a global scale, but only if we mobilize and act decisively and rapidly. In this session, we will learn how we can protect and restore 50% of global landscapes while staying below 1.5°C temperature rise in the next few decades. Projects such as the newly launched Global Safety Net provide a roadmap: a bioregional approach combining world-class science, a clear focus on Indigenous rights and stewardship, support for grassroots action, and a vision for transformative philanthropy.

This panel took place at the Bioneers 2020 Conference.

Hosted by Justin Winters, Co-Founder and Executive Director of One Earth, with: Carly Vynne, Strategic Partner at RESOLVE; Oscar Soria, Campaign Director at AVAAZ; Karl Burkart, Managing Director of One Earth; Angela Amanakwa Kaxuyana, part of the senior leadership of the Brazilian Coordination of Indigenous peoples in the Amazon (COIAB).

Effects of Land Use Change on Bee Communities

Deepa Senapathi talks about a study investigating the impact of over 80 years of land-cover change on insect pollinator communities in Britain and explains how results show expansion of single habitat types, such as arable land, may be detrimental for pollinators but diverse, mixed habitats including urban environments may benefit species diversity. Published on Apr 1, 2015

Apache Resistance At Oak Flat Against Arizona Copper Mine
Stand with us in joining the San Carlos Apache Nation to protect Oak Flat campground, a sacred Apache site in the Tonto National Forest in central Arizona.

International mining giant Rio Tinto's plans to develop a massive copper mine there would leave a depression in the ground the size of the Winslow meteor crater, drain the aquifer and destroy important streams, springs and wildlife habitat.

Oak Flat is also home to numerous species of wildlife, including an ocelot that was killed on a nearby road several years ago. The area was formally withdrawn from mining by presidential order 50 years ago, but Congress recently approved a land swap that allows the company to obtain private control of the land and evade environmental laws in the process.Published on Feb 10, 2015 by Center for Biological Diversity
