The World’s Most Valuable Bank – What is Nature Worth was a Kew Patrons event that took place in November 2013. The panel discussion focussed on the economic value of our planet’s natural resources, and questioned what price we can put on nature. The talk is now available to download as an MP3.

This year, Kew is taking part in the 'Big Give Christmas Challenge', a campaign to encourage philanthropic giving by matching a donors’ gift. Effectively your donation to the Millennium Seed Bank Partnership could be doubled! We need to raise £50,000 for next year’s seed collecting trips, as well as expanding our work on using existing collections. Please note: This campaign ran from 6 to 19 December 2012 and has now finished.
