COVID-19 and Climate Change: Communications

Click to play video

Recent months have seen the COVID-19 pandemic emerge as a global crisis requiring immediate, wide-spread and evidence-based action. As countries have taken drastic measures to curb the spread of the virus, comparisons have arisen between the global response to COVID-19 and climate change. Despite their fundamental differences, they are both significant global challenges that require immediate action based upon scientific evidence. So how and why have our responses differed, and what can we learn from the handling of COVID-19 to apply to our response to climate change?

Join us for this third event, COVID-19 and Climate Change - Communications, in our new online event series.

Speakers: Dr Will Grant and Dr David Holmes An interactive discussion featuring communication experts Dr Will Grant and Dr David Holmes on COVID-19 communications, community responses and what the implications are for how we communicate around climate change.

These events will be recorded. The recording will be made available after the event through the ANU Climate Change Institute YouTube channel.
