Webinar Invitation: Are "Nature-based Solutions" a natural policy choice? from Energy vs Climate

The federal government has committed to using "nature-based solutions [aka natural climate solutions] to fight climate change, including by planting two billion trees." But is reforesting an area the size of a European country and managing that forest, naturally a good form of climate/energy policy and public investment?  

Join David, Sara, and Ed, along with special guest Mark Tercek, former president and CEO of The Nature Conservancy and co-author of "Nature’s Fortune: How Business and Society Thrive by Investing in Nature." They will unpack the growing (but still abstract) field of natural ecosystem protection and climate mitigation.
