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, Jessica Villat, Head of Communication at Luc Hoffmann Institute, talks about collectivist versus individualistic world views – and how this influences our attitudes to biodiversity and humanity’s place in nature.

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.
