- Are there particular aspects of the presentation you enjoyed or intrigued you and are there others that could have been improved?
Answer: Presentation content mentioned about Climate change and ecological degradation are challenges with impacts at all scales, from local to global. Mitigation, adaptation, management and rethinking carbon-heavy ways of life and “business as usual” will require creative tactics, solutions, and worldviews. I believe his presentation was more organize.
