Panel: Tuesday, June 23 from 10AM – 11:30AM (PST)
COVID-19 has been called the ‘great revealer’, illuminating the ways in which the systems we have in place have not been/are not supporting equity or wellbeing. As communities and society respond to this pandemic, we are being called to address this current health crisis and a pending economic crisis, all within a climate crisis. Now, more than ever, a multi-solving lens is critical to ensure that we can create future pathways that acknowledge the interconnections between the climate, health, equity, and social and economic systems.
Join the BC Climate and Health Network and our expert panelists for a discussion about how these times provide opportunities and challenges to reimagine systems that are healthier, more just and resilient.
