COVID, CLIMATE & COMMUNITY

MAKING CONNECTIONS TO ACHIEVE JUSTICE FOR ALL

This Right to Health Web-In will use a participatory, community-centered lens to explore how COVID-19 and climate are connected. After learning from a panel of speakers with extensive experience in community mobilization, climate justice, and One Health, we will organize into interactive small groups that envision and co-create sustainable solutions to optimize planetary health, prevent future pandemics, and achieve justice for all. By cultivating models for effective collaboration within our diverse global community, together we will build momentum for a transformative movement that directly links environmental sustainability with human health.
