Summer Series – Offsetting Us Up To Fail: The myths of ‘nature markets’ explained [Webinar]

featuring Ebony Bennett, Richard Denniss and Polly Hemming

Our summer podcast series brings you some of the best conversations from our webinars in 2022.

Australian governments have committed to tackling the twin climate and biodiversity crises but continue to subsidise and approve fossil fuels and habitat destruction. While simple policy solutions exist, governments are instead relying on over-complicated market-based solutions to conceal the fundamental contradiction between support for fossil fuel production and promises to save the environment.

This was recorded on Wednesday 23rd November 2022 and things may have changed since recording.
