Climate change and COVID-19: What have we learned? - 22 July 2020

Please note that this event has passed.


The pandemic has had a profound impact on our environment. Lockdown measures have resulted in significantly reduced levels of air pollution, and what may be the first time we have begun to see noticeable changes in the world we live in. Despite this, it seems that the climate emergency has been put on hold while attention and resources have focused on fighting the pandemic.

As part of our King's Experts Series, join us as we ask our panel: What lessons can we learn from the pandemic when it comes to climate change and the environment? Will coming out of lockdown undo the progress already made? What are some of the parallels that can be drawn between the impact of the pandemic and climate change?

For those who are unable to join via Zoom, we will also be livestreaming the discussion on our Alumni YouTube channel.

Please note, your details will be passed onto the Alumni Office, who will hold your details to personalise your supporter experience. For information on how we use your details please see our privacy statement.
