The Natural Capital Symposium is a major convening of leaders advancing the science and practice of incorporating nature’s diverse values into decisions. Each year, participants representing universities, NGOs, businesses, governments, multi-lateral development banks, and other institutions learn about and share their own experiences advancing the frontiers of science, the development and application of practical tools and approaches, and how natural capital understanding is being used today to transform decisions. 

John Virdin, director of the Nicholas Institute's Ocean and Coastal Policy Program, will be part of a panel discussion titled "The Anthropocene Ocean" on the first day of the conference. Katie Warnell, a policy associate with the Nicholas Institute's Ecosystem Services Program, will present "Applying InVEST for Coastal Resilience and Blue Carbon Planning in North Carolina" later in the symposium.
