Prof Mazin Qumsiyeh of the Palestine Museum of Natural History and Palestine Institute of Biodiversity and Sustainability, Bethlehem University, will speak of the challenges of accelerating human destruction of our natural world. This requires global and local responses but even in the best of circumstances, research, education, and conservation efforts struggle to meet those challenges.
In Palestine under colonisation and apartheid, these challenges are compounded. Yet issues such as biodiversity, conservation, and sustainable development cannot wait for the peaceable and just end to the political situation. Mazin will show how working on these issue is itself as trans-formative part of the struggle for freedom.
