Each sector of society has a part to play as we work on the massive challenges of the climate and biodiversity crisis. These crises will not be solved by individual sectors – the challenges are too complex. We need to break down the silos between different players within sectors and between sectors to work together and collaborate as a community to address the urgent need for systemic and transformative change.
