A Tale of Two Crises: The Pandemic and Climate Change, Tuesday 14th July, 11.00

Logo for the Sussex Sustainability Research Programme.

Over the past few months the world has rightly focused on the tragedy of the Covid-19 pandemic. But what about the other global crisis, climate change? Is there a connection between the two?

Join the discussion in this Sussex Sustainability Research Programme (SSRP) webinar, featuring short talks followed by a Q&A with two climate experts: Dr Melissa Lazenby (Global Studies), whose research focuses on climate projections over Southern Africa; and Prof Benjamin Sovacool (SPRU), whose research focuses on energy policy, energy security, climate change mitigation and adaptation.

The webinar will be moderated by Prof Joseph Alcamo, director of SSRP and a professor of environmental systems science. He previously served as the first Chief Scientist of UNEP, and play a strategic role in the international climate negotiations leading up to the Paris Agreement.
