Economic growth has improved our livelihoods yet has equally had negative effects on the environment. Predictions suggest, however, that after some threshold of development is reached, the environment may begin to recover. This talk will explore this prediction; bridging developmental and ecological economics with environmental science to explore how humanity balances economic growth and biodiversity conservation.

Mustafa Zaidi is Director of Research at Clarmond, a UK-based wealth management firm, and is advisor to Synchronicity Earth, a UK charity focused on the environment and ecosystems.
