The 2018 Jon Goldstein Memorial Lecture featured Gretchen Daily. Stephen Polasky, Regents Professor and the Fesler-Lampert Professor of Ecological/Environmental Economics at the University of Minnesota, was the moderator.
For more than two decades, Stanford University professor Gretchen Daily has pioneered the concept of natural capital, working with governments, investors, corporations, NGOs, and communities to integrate the values of nature into development plans. There is still a long way to go – but there has been stunning progress toward the transformation toward an “ecological civilization."
