Why The Pandemic is Telling Us That Our Relationship with Nature is Broken
Thursday 16 July 2020 - 02:00pm - Thursday 16 July 2020 03:00pm
Sustainability Network

As COVID-19 has swept across the planet, a great deal of attention has been focused on human health and socio-economic fallout. Much less attention has been given to the root causes of the spillover event that led to this virus spreading to human communities. But with the interface between human communities and wild places constantly expanding, we need to pay much more attention to rethinking our relationship with wild places and their inhabitants.

In this talk, Dr. Justina Ray will summarize the latest scientific findings on how this particular pandemic was sparked, the links between declines in biodiversity and loss of intact ecosystems round the world and the rise of viral spillover events, along with policy implications.

Cost: $10 per person. A recording of the webinar and the slides will be made available to all those who register.
*Please note, all participants will receive a confirmation email and a link to join the webinar through Zoom.
