The section on Nature covered all aspects of the natural world and reminds us that nature brings us the air, wind, and food that the 8 billion people in the world need to survive. The People section shows how many of man’s activities are impacting on the natural world, while the Planet section covers rising temperatures and CO2 levels.
In the final section, Chris explained that Terra Carta addressed the need for greater understanding of the risks we all face and how, by working together, we can address these issues. He mentioned wind turbines and solar panels as two areas where they were being addressed and, although these are steps in the right direction, more has to be done particularly in terms of activating young people as it is their future that is at stake.
The address was warmly received and, after questions from members, Chris received a well-deserved round of applause.
