Interested in the linkages between technology, nature and biodiversity?

Join the upcoming meeting organised for scholars interested in the linkages between technology, nature and biodiversity. Participants are invited to an online meeting to discuss the modalities of a working group on new technologies, under the Taskforce on the Governance of Nature and Biodiversity. This group will aim to explore and systematize the diverse empirical, conceptual, and normative linkages between technology, nature and biodiversity, bridging technological issues from biotechnology over climate engineering up to artificial intelligence and beyond.

The meeting is scheduled for the 5th of May 2022, 17:00 to 18:00 Central European Time. If you would like to participate, please get in touch with Florian Rabitz under
