ESG Series #6: Regenerative development enhances sustainability and resilience through a sophisticated understanding of how all living systems are interconnected. Linking diverse people and places through international scientific alliances and hands-on local projects (like regenerative finance, convenings at the Commonwealth of Nations, and Project CETI with whales) creates innovative, long-term solutions to mitigate the impact of climate change.
In this episode, Milbank partner Russell Jacobs and podcast host Allan Marks speak with Rola Khoury of UK-based charity Common Earth to understand how a more systemic, inclusive approach to valuing nature and biodiversity can create ecological, social, and economic benefits on land and in the seas. They also explore how new technologies and ancient wisdom work together for a healthier planet.
