David Edwards

Our lifestyles are having profound impacts on the Earth’s ecosystems. How much of nature are we prepared to sacrifice to sustain our lifestyles, and does it matter? Are we living sustainably? Can we enjoy a decent material quality of life without losing the simple pleasure of nature? What are the conservation challenges?

David is a university tutor on environmental sustainability and renewable energy and also an earth science field studies guide.

He will give a thought-provoking and enlightening, but humorous, talk exploring how progress is measured and what environmental costs we are prepared to pay to maintain current living standards.
