King’s Expert event this week

In the third of our blog post on the COVID-19 crisis and water, we feature an event this week with our member, Dr Mark Mulligan, speaking about the pandemic and the environment.

In the ‘King’s Expert’ webinar, Mark and fellow panellists will cover the links between the pandemic, climate change and the environment.

Livestreaming will start 17:30 BST on Wednesday 22 July 2020 here on the KCLAlumni YouTube channel.

Climate change and COVID-19: What have we learned?

The pandemic has had a profound impact on our environment. Lockdown measures have resulted in significantly reduced levels of air pollution, and what may be the first time we have begun to see noticeable changes in the world we live in. Despite this, it seems that the climate emergency has been put on hold while attention and resources have focused on fighting the pandemic.

As part of our King’s Experts Series, join us as we ask our panel: What lessons can we learn from the pandemic when it comes to climate change and the environment? Will coming out of lockdown undo the progress already made? What are some of the parallels that can be drawn between the impact of the pandemic and climate change?
