Date 日期:  23 Apr 2020
 
Time 時間: 4:30pm - 6:00pm
 
Venue 地點: Zoom Meeting
 
Speaker(s) 講師: Ng Yan Ping Sammie from Singapore

Summary 內容: We are in the middle of a global pandemic. We are also in the middle of the climate crisis, with mass coral reefs bleaching, the Australian Bushfires and the locusts in East Africa. How has COVID-19 exposed the same systemic inequalities which also underpin the climate crisis? More importantly, what are we learning from how the world is responding to COVID-19 so that we can combat the climate crisis at the same time? As author Naomi Klein recently said in a speech, “We cannot go ‘back to normal’. Because ‘normal’ is a crisis.”
