Event details

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.

Our speakers with backgrounds in Brazilian Environment and Society studies, reflect how diverse scientific fields are tackling these crises.
