Lessons from Nature as Complexity & Consequence Collide-Ruth DeFries

December 2, 2020
1:00 PM - 2:00 PM

Join Sustain What host Andy Revkin in a conversation on resilient paths through tumultuous times with MacArthur Fellow and Columbia Earth Institute sustainable development professor Ruth DeFries.

We’ll center the chat on the timely themes in DeFries’ new book, which lays out the properties of living things and the ecosystems they form that help them persist amid disruptive change. Sound useful these days?

Read an excerpt of the book, "What Would Nature Do":

Also joining us is Tamar Haspel, the Washington Post’s Unearthed columnist and Cape Cod oyster farmer!
