Biodiversity for a Livable Climate: Using The Miyawaki Method To Rapidly Rewild The World
May 30 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm| Free
What can hold more than 500 species, sequester more than 500 lbs. CO2/year, be 10℉ cooler than its surroundings, soak up lots of rainwater, and be made by and for children in a space no bigger than a tennis court? A “mini-forest” planted using the Miyawaki Method, of course!
Please join us for our next talk in the Life Saves the Planet lecture series with GBH Forum Network to hear from Miyawaki-Method advocates Hannah Lewis (Bio4Climate Compendium editor) and Daan Bleichrodt (The Netherlands’ Tiny Forest initiative leader), as they talk about mini-/tiny-forests and their role in climate resilience, urban beautification, and connecting all of us to nature.
Dave Morimoto, Professor of Biology and Chair of Natural Science and Mathematics in the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences at Lesley University will moderate the discussion.
The talk will be recorded and made available online through GBH Forum Network. Register for free here. Hannah’s new book, “Mini-Forest Revolution” will be published by Chelsea Green on June 9, 2022.
We hope you will join us on Monday, May 30 at 12pm ET and spread the word on this exciting discussion.
