How we can improve environmental decision making

Dr Iara Lacher is a landscape ecologist at the Smithsonian Conservation Biology Institute (SCBI), interested in issues of sustainable land use planning and biodiversity conservation. This talk highlights what Iara has learned about people, communications, and her role in conservation, while developing a scientific initiative that spans the science-policy gap.

This talk was brought to you by Be in the Change’s Global Huddle. During the first Global Huddle, an online festival of ideas and stories, we invited a dozen changemakers from across the globe to share with us their journeys of how they helped to make a positive difference in society.

Along with her full-time job as an ecologist, Iara is also co-owner of Seven Bends Nursery, a native plant nursery and an Ecological Landscapes Consultant for Earth Walk Dwellings, You can connect with her on Twitter here.
