The Embassy of Sweden and National Geographic Live! are proud to announce a presentation by one of the world's leading photographers. Mattias will share select award-winning images and experiences from more than two decades of documenting some of our world's most vulnerable ecosystems. Mattias is also holding a one-man exhibition at the House of Sweden, April 1 - June 7, 2009. We learned a long time ago that what we buy has an impact on nature. When we as consumers buy cookies, shampoo and potato chips made with palm oil, we destroy the rain forests and their inhabitants: orangutans, king cobras and well, all biodiversity. When what is left of the rainforest is burned, there is an increase in carbon dioxide emissions. Everything is Connected! The lecture takes place April 4, 2009, 3:00 - 5:00 PM House of Sweden 2900 K Street, NW Washington DC 20007.
