In addition to the horrific loss of life resulting from the COVID-19 pandemic, there have also been enormous economic costs. Governments are responding in the right way, and trillions of dollars are now on the table to kickstart the world's economy. This is the highest level of financial support seen during peacetime.
We have a once in a lifetime opportunity to use these stimulus packages to incentivise a more sustainable, fair and green economic model: one that puts nature at its heart. We have secured three leading figures in multilateral organisms from Asia, Europe and Latin America who will enlighten us on the opportunities and challenges of using the recovery funds as the starting point for a greener future.
Hosted by BirdLife CEO, Patricia Zurita and BirdLife Council Chairman, Braulio Dias
We look forward to you engaging in this daring discussion. After presentations from our speakers, there will be a moderated Q&A from Braulio Dias and the public, then closing remarks from Patricia Zurita.
