John Higginson is joined by Green policy and environmental expert Paul Ekins OBE.

Together John and Paul discussed the link between economics and the environment, how the impending recession will impact the natural world, what industry can do to be part of the solution, and much more.

Paul is currently co-director of the UK Energy Research Centre. He is also the Director of the Institute for Sustainable Resources, and Director of Research at the School of Sustainable Resources and Energy at University College London.

This is the fourth podcast in a series of episodes by Higginson Strategy’s Nature 2030 campaign – a movement aiming to smash the silo culture that hampers humanity’s efforts to respond to the challenges global nature is facing.

The series is focused on how to save the world from environmental disaster.
