Café Scientifique: Incorporating Value of Nature into Corporate Decisions

Sponsored by Ballston Science and Technology Alliance

The idea that nature delivers benefits to humans is an easy sell. Turning that idea into changes in business practices is not so simple. The Nature Conservancy and The Dow Chemical Company are mid-way through a six-year collaboration to explicitly bring data on the value of nature into business decisions, with the goal of improving decision-making and enhancing a company's long-term sustainability by highlighting the value of protecting ecosystems that provide critical services to the company and the public. Presented by Jennifer L. Molnar, Director of Science, The Nature Conservancy.

The goal of Café Scientifique is to make science more accessible and accountable by featuring speakers whose expertise spans the sciences and who can talk in plain English. Please come early to order table service and socialize. Special reduced-price burgers start at 5:30 p.m. Presentation begins at 6:15 p.m. followed by Q&A. No science background required! Café Scientifique is free and open to the public but advanced registration is requested.
