If you have a question about this talk, please contact Felicity Clarke.

A full day to bring together interested parties from across the spectrum – including practitioners, politicians, artists, academics and campaigners - to help clarify issues and questions over how we conceive of, conserve and ultimately value nature. To delve into the concept of Natural Capital, and the assumptions behind it: The concept of ‘natural capital’ is usually thought to imply the possibility of its valuation in monetary terms. Expenditure on ‘natural capital’ is then seen as a form of investment. In this final event of the AHRC -funded DNV project, we critique this notion considering what we risk losing when we apply capitalist thinking to the natural environment. Speakers include: • Craig Bennett , FOE • Tony Juniper, WWF • Molly Scott Cato, MEP (Green) • John Foster, Lancaster University • Richard Spencer, ICAEW • Jenneth Parker, Schumacher Institute
