Two distinguished speakers attended the inaugural WWF Living Planet Conference on 16 November at Erinvale Golf Estate in Somerset West. Former President Thabo Mbeki and the current Minister of Finance Pravin Gordhan added their unique perspectives to the conference proceedings, which also featured input from a number of WWF’s thought leaders.
There were talks on climate change and the insurance industry, transport, illegal rhino horn trade, economics and ecosystems, and the training of future environmental leaders, capping a dynamic conference that explored and reflected upon the environmental challenges all South Africans face.
The Living Planet Conference is a new addition to the WWF-SA calendar, adding value to the organisation’s Annual General Meeting. It attracted an audience that included board members, trustees and corporate members as well as other interested stakeholders.
