The Covid-19 pandemic and the climate emergency amplifies existing social vulnerabilities, calling for a need for a reorientation of values, and a reorganization of power and responsibilities. However, they may also be seen as opportunity to catalyze processes of social change, foster emancipatory knowledge and accelerate transformations. This webinar debates both crises - Covid-19 and climate - from global and local perspectives, calling for a deepening of the syndemic knowledge and recognizing the interconnection of environmental issues, health problems, socioeconomic dynamics to how they impact groups differently.
