Culture and ecosystem services

The role of cultural ecosystem services in sustainability

Talk by Kai Chan, Associate professor at University of British Columbia

Kai Chan is Associate professor at University of British Columbia. His training spans conservation biology, ecology, evolutionary biology, policy, and ethics, and his skill sets include quantitative analysis and modeling.

Kai combines these perspectives in a sustainability science research program on social-ecological interactions (including human impacts on ecosystem components and processes, and ecosystem services to benefit people) and applied environmental ethics to inform ecosystem-based management and sustainability solutions.

Kai leads CHAN’S lab; he is a director on the board of the Canadian Parks and Wilderness Society’s BC chapter (CPAWS-BC), a senior fellow of the Environmental Leadership Program, a member of the Global Young Academy, and a fellow of the Leopold Leadership Program.
