EcoMyths: How Botanic Gardens Help Fight Climate Change
Kate Sackman of EcoMyths Alliance believes that with an increased focus, worldwide, on slowing Climate Change and creating sustainable livelihoods, more people are seeking to understand these problems and how to solve them. For our regular EcoMyths segment, Sackman joins us with Dr. Paul Smith, secretary general of Botanic Gardens Conservation International and former head of the Kew Millennium Seed Bank. They’ll tell us why they think that botanic gardens, accessible to most city dwellers in the U.S., are the key to finding these global solutions.
Guests: Kate Sackman is the founder and president of EcoMyths Alliance.
