Background

The 4th edition of the Geneva Lecture Series delivered by Jane Goodall, PhD, DBE, aimed to raise environmental awareness by responding to the following question  "Nature's Wake-Up Call: Why we should heed the warning".

The Geneva lecture Series is a joint UNOG-UNITAR initiative that aims to bring awareness of pressing global challenges to the concerned public and civil society in Geneva and beyond, with a focus on how each individual can contribute to resolve such challenges. By engaging prominent intellectual figures, leaders from the world of business, politics and civil society leaders, it also offers an intellectual anchor for the work of the United Nations and other international organizations in Geneva and a mechanism to channel current thinking and research into policy-making.
