"We totally rely on nature: for food, for medicine, for clothes, for energy, for everything. We are part of nature, it is inherent in everything we are and do." – Bård Vegar Solhjell, Director General of the Norwegian Agency for Development Cooperation @noradno at #GLFBiodiversity
"Over the course of six widely varied episodes, leaders from the frontlines of biodiversity research and action, speaking in their individual expert capacities, will share cutting-edge science and vibrant personal insights about some of the most important issues facing people and the planet – starting with the links between COVID-19, nature loss and what we can do to reduce the risk of future pandemics. "
There was a time when meadow, grove, and stream,
The earth, and every common sight,
To me did seem
Apparelled in celestial light,
The glory and the freshness of a dream.
It is not now as it hath been of yore;—
Turn wheresoe'er I may,
By night or day.
The things which I have seen I now can see no more.
