GHSA K-12 Virtual Happy Hour: Intersections of Climate Change and COVID-19
May 7, 2020 @ 5:00 pm - 6:00 pm
Green & Healthy Schools Academy K-12 Virtual Happy Hour
Intersections of Climate Change and COVID-19
During the COVID-19 quarantines, it feels like everything has been put on hold, including public displays of climate activism. Based on what we know from previous global pandemics, massive recessions, and world wars, what can we anticipate for climate action after COVID-19? Our discussion will be based on Rebecca Solnit’s article, “’The impossible has already happened’: what coronavirus can teach us about hope,” and how although we can’t anticipate everything, there is some promise moving forward.

The first 15 minutes of each Happy Hour will be a brief presentation on the topic, which will lead into a guided discussion. There will be a summary of the reading, so don’t feel like you need to read it to participate in the conversation. The Zoom link will be sent upon registering. Contact Ellen Conrad (firstname.lastname@example.org) with any questions.
This event encompasses United Nations Sustainable Development Goal 13: Climate Action.
