From food security risks and species loss to deforestation and drought, the Earth faces increasing environmental challenges. Could technology be the key to solving some of our biggest environmental problems?
On Wednesday, May 17, guests joined the Pew Trusts and a panel of leading experts to explore how the latest science, front-line technologies, and big data can reveal global trends and help protect our planet.
Panelists brought their extensive experience in using innovations and strategies to address environmental issues and discussed how advanced tools—such as satellite monitoring and forensic science—can benefit worldwide conservation efforts.
