As the world focuses on the impact of the pandemic, what will become of global efforts to address sustainability? Are there lessons to be learned from the rapid global response to COVID-19 that might help us build a more sustainable planet? Will a weary post-pandemic world be ready and willing to tackle the longer-term consequences of climate change, ecological degradation and the associated social and economic impacts?
McGill experts in biology and law explore the unique sustainability challenges – and opportunities – for our society in a post-COVID-19 world. Watch the second episode of a four-part series of the Made by McGill webcasts, in partnership with the McGill Sustainability Systems Initiative.
