#RoutetoCOP15 has reached its destination.

Hot on the heels of COP27 in Egypt, COP15, the upcoming UN biodiversity summit, is ready to set out a critical 10-year plan for how countries will work together to achieve a nature-positive world by 2030.

During COP15, representatives of 196 governments will be joined by delegates from around the world, including those from business and finance, scientists and the academic community, indigenous peoples and youth representatives, as they negotiate a global biodiversity framework. A once-in-a-decade opportunity to halt the destruction of the natural world.

Join the COP conversation as RSK reports live from COP15.

Our panel of experts will debate:

  • key discussion points highlighted so far during COP15
  • progress made towards a robust nature-positive action plan
  • what living in harmony with nature looks like for future generations
  • how living in harmony with nature can look different around the world

Plus, we are extremely excited to:

  • screen the trailer for a new series of videos looking at how living in harmony with nature can look different around the world and
  • introduce Living in harmony with nature – a short guide to behaving as though the planet mattered, a book written by Steph Wray.

Steph is an ecologist and biodiversity expert with more than 25 years of global experience in the assessment of the impacts of major infrastructure projects and organisations on biodiversity.
A past president of the Chartered Institute of Ecology and Environmental Management (CIEEM), Steph is chair of CIEEM’s Strategic Policy Panel that coordinates the institute’s policy activities throughout the UK and Ireland and is regularly called on to provide advice to ministers, select committees and government departments and agencies.

Jane Davidson – Pro Vice-Chancellor Emeritus at the University of Wales Trinity Saint David and patron of the UK Chartered Institute of Ecology and Environmental Management

Jane Davidson is on a mission to mainstream laws to protect the wellbeing of future generations. Her know-how and passion were forged as a Welsh Government minister, university pro vice-chancellor and land restorer.

Mark Gough – Chief Executive Officer, Capitals Coalition

Mark Gough is the chief executive officer of the Capitals Coalition, a global collaboration of business, governments and civil society that is transforming the way decisions are made by including the value provided by nature and people.
Previously, Mark led the Natural Capital Coalition and was on the board of the Social and Human Capital Coalition. He championed and delivered the uniting of these two communities, creating a unified, systemic and collaborative approach.

Eva Lee – Co-founder of ANTS Theatre

Eva is a South Korean interdisciplinary artist born in Spain, raised in Brazil, educated in China, and now living in the UK. Her work tries to find the humanness that can be found in everything and the care that can be found in everyone. She is still in the process of figuring out how she, and the art that she makes, can help make a change. She is the co-founder of ANTS Theatre, a company that creates work by taking that which may seem pointless and pursuing it until it becomes poignant. She graduated from RCSSD with an MFA in Advanced Theatre Practice in 2021.

Natasha Warren – Presenter

Natasha is an actress, writer and presenter with a background in nature conservation. Those two sides of her personality have constantly battled throughout her career. Growing up in the countryside in a house full of ecologists, unusual pets and protected species, she also spent time on the sets of wildlife documentaries that her parents were making. Natasha studied zoology at university but the call to the stage and screen was too strong and she left to pursue acting as a career. It seems that marketing and acting use a lot of the same skills. Making the film Climate change: where are the warriors? for COP26 finally brought together her two working worlds.

😮 Natural wetlands are disappearing three times faster than forests: 35% of global wetlands were lost between 1970 and 2015, and overall, 85% have been lost since the 1700s.

💧 It's #WorldWetlandsDay, which aims to raise awareness of the vital role of wetlands for people and the planet.

💚 We need to change our mindset around these essential habitats and their importance.
