Building Resilience: COVID-19 and Climate Change

The Covid-19 pandemic is disrupting life unlike anything most of the world has ever seen. While there is little evidence that the pandemic is spreading more quickly because of climate change there are clear parallels between the two crises.

Join the Environmental Business Council, the Sustainable Solutions Lab at the University of Massachusetts Boston, and John Snow, Inc. (JSI) for a discussion on climate resilience and the connections between Covid-19 and climate change. Speakers will explore how our responses can make us more resilient to future threats, what climate resilience looks like in this new reality, and highlight success stories.

Juliette Kayyem, national leader in homeland security and disaster response, and Dr. Georges Benjamin, President of the American Public Health Association, will speak about the crisis on the national scale while local public health and environment leaders will share their experience on the ground in a panel moderated by the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation.
