Environmental Challenges: Rights and Values in Ecosystem Services (FutureLearn)
Differences in values can create conflict. How can we learn to manage our natural resources with integrity? Humans are very innovative, but we’ve also created many ecological problems. We’ve changed the face of the planet, fished the oceans, and we’re causing climate change through emissions. Designing institutional arrangements that recognise ecosystem services in the values we place upon natural systems will be an important way to help governing the planet, for both present and future generations.
