Half-Earth Day brings together people from around the world and across disciplines to share their unique perspective and thought leadership on how we can successfully ensure the health of our planet for future generations.
Inspired by renowned biologist and naturalist E.O. Wilson, Half-Earth is a call to conserve half the Earth’s land and sea in order to provide sufficient habitat to safeguard the bulk of biodiversity, including ourselves.
Half-Earth Day is an annual celebration and opportunity for scientists, conservationists, community representatives, decision-makers, and educators to share their progress towards biodiversity conservation and inspire fresh energy and engagement.
The day will feature presentations and discussion on education, community engagement, science, technology, and other work underway on the path to Half-Earth.
The evening event will feature a conversation with E.O. Wilson about Half-Earth and efforts to save the natural world, presented by the James M. and Cathleen D. Stone Foundation Distinguished Lectureship in Biodiversity.
Join us for an exciting day of programming at the University of California, Berkeley.
