The Natural History Museum Live Panel

In celebration of the UN’s World Environment Day, The Natural History Museum will be holding two live panels to discuss biodiversity and plastic pollution, with each panel hosted by our founder David de Rothschild.

The Natural History Museum Live Panel

I am extremely excited to be hosting this series of discussions for the Natural History Museum with such a fantastic lineup of speakers. The Museum has always been close to my heart and I hope that together we can inspire people that their own actions, both big and small, can help to reduce the impacts of biodiversity loss and plastic pollution. This World Environment Day, it is more important than ever to keep the conversation alive on what we can all do to protect our planet – It’s time for Nature.
