Biodiversity Revisited is a collaborative thought leadership process to co-produce a new, integrated five-year research agenda to effectively sustain life on Earth. As part of the Biodiversity Revisited initiative, the Boston Biodiversity Talks took place in May 2019 at the Frederick S. Pardee School of Global Studies at Boston University, USA, to begin exploring fresh thinking around biodiversity.

Here, Gretchen Henderson, Co-Director of an NEH Institute on “Museums: Humanities in the Public Sphere“, reflects on how getting stuck on the wrong questions can lead us away from solutions and innovations in our efforts to protect the natural world.

Biodiversity Revisited is an initiative of the Luc Hoffmann Institute, in collaboration with ETH ZürichFuture EarthUniversity of Cambridge Conservation Research InstituteUniversity College London Centre for Biodiversity and Environment Research and WWF. The initiative exists thanks to generous funding from the NOMIS Foundation, the MAVA Foundation and WWF International.
