Questions about the future of the rainforest can be put to an expert panel at the Eden Project.
George Alagiah, presenter of BBC One's News At Six, will host the panel as they discuss the plight of the world's rainforests and solutions to protect them in Are The Rainforests For Sale?
The night is set against the backdrop of Eden's own Rainforest Biome.
Speakers Simon Counsell, chief executive of the Rainforest Foundation, Andrew Mitchell, executive director of the Global Canopy Programme, Dr Benjamin Beck, director of conservation at the Great Ape Trust, and Eden trustee and plant specialist Professor Sir Ghillean Prance will be answering questions.
People can email questions for the panel in advance with their name and if they are to attend the debate. If their question is selected, they will have the chance to read it at the debate.
Tickets for Are The Rainforests For Sale? between 7pm and 9pm on April 20 cost £10, and include admission to the Eden site from 3pm. Students can attend for free, but should book beforehand.
