20090127gb - Video lecture - live by Dr.Eric Chivian (nobel laureate - 1985)

Lecture by Eric Chivian
26th Jan 2009
The best part of my visit to Techfesta was attending a live video lecture (video conference) by ERIC Chivian (recipient of Noble peace price in the year 1985) on Sustaining life. The Earth's biodiversity - the rich variety of life on our planet - is disappearing at an alarming rate.  And while human health depends, to a larger extent than we might imagine, on biodiversity, the essential relationship is rarely addressed.  JDr. Erick Chivian lectured on the importance of biodiversity to human health - from medicines, biomedical research, infectios diseases, and food production to the ecosystem services that support life on earth, and learn why we can no longer see ourselves as separate from the natural world. , nor assume that we will be unharmed by its alteration.
Eric Chivian is the recipient of the 1985 Nobel peace prize.  He is the Founder and Director of the Centre of Health and the Global Environment, and an Assistant Professor of Psychiatry at Harvard Medical School.
