Environment speakers, speakers on wildlife, conservation, our environment, and climate change.
The modern environmental movement could be said to have begun in 1962 with the publication of Rachel Carson’s Silent Spring. The book led directly to the banning of pesticides such as DDT and to the foundation of the US Environmental Protection Agency. In 1969 Friends of the Earth was founded in San Francisco in 1969. Two years later Greenpeace was created with a direct action agenda. Climate change [AGW] and plastics in the ocean are on the topical campaigning agenda of the twenty-first century but other issues have been important in the past. CFC gases created a hole in the ozone layer. The gases were phased out and damage to the ozone layer is now almost completely healed.
Activists and campaigners have scored some great victories but perhaps public awareness of our environment has often been the result of the popularity of television documentaries. Controversial presenters such as Chris Packham and the late David Bellamy brought challenges to the environment into viewers’ living rooms. And of course Sir Richard Attenbrough can be thanked for the public interest in the environment through the seven absolutely extraordinary BBC series of ‘Life’ documentaries. Speakers help business to understand the future of environmental action, climate emergency, and how business can meet its new environmental responsibilities.
