Resilience and Adaptation: Climate and the Corona Crisis

June 23, 2020 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm EDT

The corona crisis demonstrates that nature ultimately cannot be controlled. It does not negotiate nor does it abide by the rules of maximizing economic benefits. Climate change has long been on the global agenda – but it has not been taken seriously by everyone. Does the current moment provide an opportunity to address environmental concerns in a new way? Experts Claudia Kemfert and Jennifer Morgan will discuss the lessons learned from the pandemic regarding the impact for the climate as well as how recovery funds can be used to push for a green transition in the United States and Europe.
