Shared Planet explores the complex and growing interface between people and the natural world. As the world population increases by approximately 200,000 people per day and our demand for resources rises year by year, is there enough room for nature?

Each program in the series will concentrate on one theme and invited guests, the world’s greatest thinkers on the environment, looking at the economic, political and social drivers that affect our relationship with nature. Field reports will illustrate the issues and what is being done on the ground to help solve the problems.
