Earthwatch Debate: Does Nature Come with a Price Tag?

May 05, 2016
London, UK

Natural Capital is a term used to describe our planet’s stocks of natural assets which include geology, soil, air, water and all living things. These are the things that make human life possible yet many are at risk from our activities.

Some people believe that in this consumer-driven modern society, we will only be able to successfully protect nature if we put a price tag on the services it provides. Others say that it is impossible to value nature in monetary terms.
