NIOO's director Prof. Louise Vet will lecture at Maastricht University on the important role of biodiversity.
During the past 3.8 billion years, nature has developed an efficient global economy. Millions of years of evolution, adapting to many changing environments, have led to an astonishing diversity of organisms, functions and ecosystems. This biodiversity is not just ‘nice to have’, it is essential for all life on Earth – including our own. In her lecture Professor Vet will show that we can learn from nature when it comes to changing our economy into a new one that does fit within nature’s economy: circular, energy from the sun and based on biodiversity.
