Our present environmental crisis was predicted two hundred years ago by the German botanist and explorer Alexander von Humboldt, and the systematic irresponsibility of governments, corporations and individuals who contribute to the problem is being constantly pointed out not only by experts, but by indigenous communities around the globe. Wade Davis is a Canadian anthropologist, ethnobotanist, explorer and writer who has travelled the world finding out about and documenting the ways of life of indigenous communities in remote places such as the Himalayas and the Amazon. Andrea Wulf is the biographer of Alexander von Humboldt, considered to be the father of ecology and one of the first to see nature as an interconnected system in which different species live, prosper and die in relation to each other. Alexandre Antonelli is the Director of Science at Kew Gardens, and he is dedicated to tackling global problems including inequality, climate change and environmental degradation, using plants as a basis for his solutions. They will talk to Rosie Boycott.
