COVID-19 and Climate Change – Event 3: Communications and community engagement
July 9 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm| Free
Recent months have seen the COVID-19 pandemic emerge as a global crisis requiring immediate, wide-spread and evidence-based action.
As countries have taken drastic measures to curb the spread of the virus, comparisons have arisen between the global response to COVID-19 and climate change. Despite their fundamental differences, they are both significant global challenges that require immediate action based upon scientific evidence.
So how and why have our responses differed, and what can we learn from the handling of COVID-19 to apply to our response to climate change?
Join us for this new online event series, COVID-19 and Climate Change, to discuss these questions and more with leading researchers in the area.
