World Environment Day (2017)

 

Local Biodiversity, Global Change and Environmental Justice

Celebrate #WorldEnvironmentDay 2017 as we discuss this year's theme "Connecting to Nature." The global loss of biodiversity and of human-nature connection - like climate change - are crises affecting people and nature.

San Francisco is a microcosm of Earth, still harboring rich local biodiversity and a place where we are putting equity at the center of restoring our relationship with nature.
