Description: We are in the middle of a period of extraordinary change on the planet – a sixth great mass extinction of biodiversity, global climate change, and rapid periods of development. Our challenges will increase as billions emerge into middle class placing new demands on the planet, exacerbated by climate change. When designing solutions and analysing policy decisions, knowing your assumptions, testing hypotheses, and applying principles of a lean start-up can be valuable tools to enhance your work. This webinar will offer participants an introduction to larger global trends in conservation and development particularly with climate change; provide ways to effectively communicate the impact of your work, and teach core skills for developing solutions and products in a changing planet.
