Butterflies as agents of change within a UNESCO Biosphere Reserve

All day on Thursday 1 April

Times shown are in GMT (UTC +0) up to the 27th March. For events on or after 28th March times are in BST (UTC +1).

How school children and their inspiring teacher created an extraordinary reserve for butterflies in the heart of their campus - and have gone on to use butterflies as flagships for conservation from Sussex to Ghana.


Head over to the Earth Optimism website to watch this talk:


Do you have questions for Dan Danahar, the lead teacher on this amazing project? Make sure to come along to the live Q&A between him, Jon Paul Rodríguez (from 'Reversing the Red'), and Mariana Martinez del Rio (from 'Women of the Land: conservation of golden eagle in Mexico'), chaired by Mike Maunder, which is happening at 8pm on Thursday 1 April!


This is part of the Saving Species speaker series - one of the sessions in Earth Optimism's Stories of Hope programme. Why not search for 'Earth Optimism' to find out what else is on?
