Overview

Join the London Early Careers Network for a captivating debate that explores the intersection of nature-based solutions and effective climate action. We look forward to presenting four passionate industry experts who will present their perspectives, providing compelling evidence and case studies. This debate will highlight the potential challenges and unintended consequences of different approaches to sustainability. The floor will then be opened to allow you to challenge the debaters and ask questions to investigate further.

The Big Debate 2024 hosted by the London Careers Network argues the motion "we can harness nature-based solutions for effective climate action”. Can we ensure equitable distribution of benefits? How do we navigate ethical concerns like land rights and biodiversity preservation? And crucially, can nature-based solutions deliver the rapid change needed in our climate emergency?

We are looking forward to this event and to hearing your thoughts on the matter. Networking and refreshments will follow.
