How can botanic gardens help to save humanity? - an online talk by Richard Deverell

February 3rd 2022

As part of the University of Oxford Botanic Garden's Winter Lecture Series 2022, Richard Deverell (Director, RBG Kew) will give an online talk raising questions such as:

  • How can botanic gardens help to save humanity?
  • Why should we care about nature and what can we do to ensure it thrives, alongside humanity, in the 21st century?
  • What role can botanic gardens play in developing and delivering solutions here in the UK and around the world?
Richard says: "I will argue that botanic gardens – these beautiful, diverse and historic organisations - have a vital role in helping humanity, and all life on earth, not just to survive these global challenges, but to thrive. Botany is the science that will save humanity."
