2019 Natural Capital Symposium

Plenary: Natural Capital Impact and Technology

March 18, 2019 - 4:00 am to 5:00 am

Paul Brest Hall

NatCap is pioneering the science, technology, and partnerships that enable people and nature to thrive. In this session, we will explore how science, technology, and partnerships together can enable understanding of natural capital to fundamentally change decisions. After brief presentations about science and partnerships, the session will feature technology. We will explore the close modern relationship between science, governance, and information technology. The tight coupling of these systems can, and has, caused one to affect the other with sometimes catastrophic results. Indeed, most every human construct has metaphorical pressure points that can be manipulated to affect large change with minimal effort. It is time for us to develop a strategy to understand and use these technological linchpins to affect large-scale positive change towards environmental sustainability
