What are we learning from the pandemic that could help us respond to that other crisis, climate change? There have been vague assertions about the need to use COVID muscle memory on future challenges, like climate change. But what if we seized this opportunity to learn those lessons while they were hot?
While we are still some way from emerging from this current global health and economic crisis, it is not too early to start investigating the newfound agency, collaboration and policy experimentation that has arisen during the pandemic. If we are to honour our commitments to the Paris Agreement goals, we are going to have to embark on an analogous journey of leadership, policy experimentation, and society-scale behaviour change that we have seen during the pandemic.
Join us to hear from States of Change and Climate KIC, as they share the latest project they are working on to capture and codify pandemic policies and practice that could be explicitly redirected to decarbonising our way of life. This project is still in development, and the audience is invited to give feedback and direction to where we go next with these ideas.
