The Behavioural Crisis Driving Ecological Overshoot | Webinar Recording taken down

We co-sponsored this webinar, which took place on November 29th, 2023.

The audio of this webinar recording ended up being very poor quality. As such, we have decided to take the recording down. But this team of guest presenters are interested in presenting a second webinar on the same topic next year (2024), so those who missed this webinar may have another chance to catch it.

This webinar was presented by the following guests:

Joseph J. Merz is the Co-founder of a number of organisations. He is the Founder and Chairman of the Merz Institute - a research institute largely focused on addressing ecological overshoot at a behavioural level. Joseph serves on the Executive Committee of the Stable Planet Alliance, and is also a Senior Fellow of the Global EverGreening Alliance.
