The exact social, political and economic effects of the current global public health crisis are still unknown but they will be profound and far reaching. The pandemic is already reshaping the context for climate action: from the delays to the UN climate talks to the collapse in the price of oil, the temporary shutdown of major high carbon industries and mass behaviour changes.
In this hour long event with three distinguished and experienced speakers from the world of climate politics, we will explore what this moment means for climate action in 2020. We will focus on the fall out from the decision to delay the United Nation’s climate talks, the growing calls for the recovery from the pandemic to be climate-friendly, and the economic and political uncertainties in the UK and across the world.
The event will include a Q and A session with the panellists.
