Population growth, the over-exploitation of natural resources and climate change are literally costing us our Earth. The Living Planet Index (2016) predicts a decline in wildlife populations of two-thirds by 2020, unless we take action now.
Although there are roles to be played by government, business, investors and the public, who potentially holds the balance of power? Which sector of society could do more to protect and preserve our most precious resources? What steps need to be taken to save our planet and which sector will take the most effective action?
Leading BBC correspondent David Shukman will be chairing the debate society about which sector holds the real power to address the biggest challenges we have ever faced and you will vote for who holds the key to the planet’s future.
