The Decline of Insects: Consequences for Mankind and the Environment
Visions of Bioeconomy - international literature festival berlin
As the most diverse group of all living things, insects represent 70% of animal species. However, they are threatened like never before. Why are insects currently dying out on such a large scale? What do they do for our ecosystem and what would a world without them look like? Eco-Poet Forrest Gander [USA] presents his poem about insects and humans. He is supported by journalist Tanja Busse [D] who examines the question of how we can still save biodiversity in »Das Sterben der Anderen« [tr: The Death of Others]. Forrest Gander participates remotely.
The event is held in English and German.
