One million species are now on the verge of extinction – a looming environmental catastrophe that needs urgent action today.

Join us for an exclusive online conversation with visionary business leaders Sir Tim Smit, the co-founder of the Eden Project and Rue Mapp, the Founder of Outdoor Afro as they discuss their work on the frontline of conservation.

Sir Tim Smit is co-founder of the amazing Eden Project in Cornwall – the iconic biomes that have attracted over 20 million visitors since opening in 2001.

Rue Mapp is founder and CEO of Outdoor Afro – America’s leading network inspiring Black leadership in nature, and celebrated by both Oprah Winfrey and Barack Obama.

This event is free and open to all, and essential for anyone who wants to learn more about how we can protect the biodiversity of our planet and integrate these values into how we all do business.

This event is part of a new series presented by Second Home and Berggruen Institute – public events that bring together the most inspiring and celebrated figures of our time to exchange and discuss groundbreaking cultural, social and political ideas.
