Climate Chatter Workshop

We are finding ourselves in a global health crisis, where the most important thing right now is safety and health. But when we get through this, it will be important to reflect on how human health and the health of our planet are connected. Planetary health, which refers to the human health impacts of human-caused disruptions of Earth's natural systems, must, therefore, be at the forefront of our agendas – to reduce the probability of similar outbreaks, to safeguard fragile communities and ecosystems, and to create a healthier future and economy for all parts of society to thrive in.

COVID-19 has also given us a glimpse into a global economy decimated by crisis. The current levels of environmental and economic disruption could become the new reality if we don't use this crisis as a catalyst to rewire the global system. Isabel Hagbrink, Director of Communications at South Pole will be talking to Sam Myers, Director of the Planetary Health Alliance about the interconnectedness of human health and the natural systems and how to do business with planetary health and long-term resilience in mind. Join their discussion followed with an open Q&A.
