Saving humanity? Tue, 21st January 2020, 8:00 pm Let's do it! Carsten Niemitz Lecture Climate crisis, extinction of species, littering of the seas – the urgent environmental problems have finally reached politics and the public. However, the topics are complex and the connections are hardly transparent. This is where Carsten Niemitz comes in: He provides clear, concise and comprehensible information on the current state of science on all important ecological issues, be it nutrition, population growth, climate, plastics or biodiversity. Let’s get to work! Because it is late. Niemitz studied biology and medicine. He has done research in the tropical jungles of Borneo and Sulawesi, was an advisor to the World Conservation Union (IUCN) and for many years head of the Institute for Human Biology at the Free University of Berlin, where he taught Nature Conservation Management, among other things. He is a book, television and film author.
