‘Climate change and covid-19: what have we learnt?’ KCL Alumni Zoom seminar Wednesday 22nd 6:30 pm CET

The pandemic has had a profound impact on our environment. Lockdown measures have resulted in significantly reduced levels of air pollution, and what may be the first time we have begun to see noticeable changes in the world we live in. Despite this, it seems that the climate emergency has been put on hold while attention and resources have focused on fighting the pandemic.

As part of our King’s Experts Series, join us as we ask our panel: What lessons can we learn from the pandemic when it comes to climate change and the environment? Will coming out of lockdown undo the progress already made? What are some of the parallels that can be drawn between the impact of the pandemic and climate change?

The event is organised by and for KCL Alumni but open to all interested parties and you can sign up here:

For those who are unable to join via Zoom, we will also be live-streaming the discussion on our Alumni YouTube channel.
