David de Rothschild: Founder, Adventure Ecology
UNEP was born in 1972, mandated to protect and improve the
environment for current and future generations. The proclamation
for its establishment notes that “humankind has acquired the
power to transform the environment in countless ways and
unprecedented scale” — and indeed the forty intervening years of
this Anthropocene age have generated major changes in facts,
technology and ways of looking at the world.
