Communicating and Visualizing Natural Capital
March 20, 2019 - 8:00 am to 9:30 am
Abstract: Powerful, engaging and inspiring ways to communicate ecosystem services assessments, and enhance Natural Capital action. Discover how interactive tools, from webmaps to VR enhance the experience and understanding of ecosystem services – and how accessible tools can help gain interest, understanding and empathy, thus leading to better natural capital decisions. Get inspired by low-tech, high-tech, storytelling and art, and learn more about data visualization in this interactive session. Let us honor all our intelligences and senses to listen, look, and understand – not only with our brains!
