5th May 2023

Enjoy the replay of Rewilding: what it means for people, business & planet – live panel and film premiere from The Beautiful Truth Magazine.

On 4th November 2022, we hosted an in-depth discussion on why rewilding is an essential part of protecting our planet and solving climate change – and how it can begin on our own doorstep.

We explored the role that individuals, communities and businesses can play when it comes to combating the human actions that have long threatened biodiversity.

We also screened the exclusive premiere of Rewilding, a short film exploring one man’s journey to transform a piece of land, and why rewilding plays a vital part in protecting our planet.

The discussion was moderated by our Co-founder, Adam Penny, and explored the importance of biodiversity and the business case for rewilding.
