A Nordic Soundscapes discussion

What would happen if the assumption that flora and fauna are there to provide for us was turned on its head? Is ‘sustainable farming’ to feed a population of 8 billion an oxymoron? How do we decide when to prioritise conservation over the needs of humans, or vice versa?

Join the debate, alongside the Philharmonia’s Principal Conductor Santtu-Matias Rouvali, a keen hunter and forager, and Lisa Chilton, farmer and Chief Executive of the National Biodiversity Network, over coffee and cinnamon buns.
