Life on planet Earth is at a critical inflection point, given the looming Sixth Great Extinction and the question of whether humans will survive it. Every year, species die off at an alarming rate, and we continue to devalue the natural capital upon which all life depends.

High-impact philanthropic strategies, sustainable business opportunities, and emerging technologies all point toward a potential breakthrough in how biodiversity flourishes from this point forward. Experts will explore workable strategies for ensuring the survival of the human species and how best to muster the allies and political will to carry them out.
