Baroness Young - In the lecture, I would lay out the scale and nature of the twin and interlinked challenges we face, the steep decline in biodiversity and the challenge of climate change. I would explore the causes of both these crises, their impacts and what needs to happen to tackle them in terms of government policies, business practice, local authority action, land manager engagement and individual behaviour.
The two big events this year that provide a unique opportunity for us here in the UK and Scotland are the Convention on Biodiversity Conference of the Parties in China (COP 15) and the Climate Change Convention Conference of the Parties (COP26) in Glasgow. Will the UK and the Scottish governments grasp the opportunity to take an effective world leadership role, to recognise that the world is drinking in the last chance saloon and to make a real impact on the twin challenges both globally and at home?
