Biodiversity - Sixth mass extinction

  • Get the know the major impact humans have on biodiversity 
  • Find out what the tipping points are for this boundary 
  • Learn about the biodiversity loss in different regions 

To combat the extinction crisis, several successful measures have already been taken to save some mainly charismatic animals from extinction. Unfortunately, this cannot reverse the downward trend. Estimate is that since the year 1500, Earth may have lost around ten percent of the two million known species. 

Breaking Boundaries

During the academic year 2022-2023, the New Energy Academy will elaborate on the nine planetary boundaries. Inspired by the documentary ‘Breaking Boundaries’ from Sir David Attenborough and Johan Rockström, the New Energy Academy brings you more insights about sustainability and shows you what is needed to become a sustainable and nature-inclusive society. You can find the documentary on Netflix.
