How Pandemic Response Can Inform the Path Forward
Stanford Woods Institute for the Environment and the Center for Advanced Study in the Behavioral Sciences at Stanford University
COVID-19 is a monumental public health crisis, with a grim toll in lives lost and economies disrupted. But the pandemic has also produced ripple effects that are challenging social norms and allowing governments and businesses to reimagine how they operate. Climate change impacts are unfolding over a longer time horizon, but are expected to be similarly disruptive and massive in scale. What lessons learned from the pandemic will contribute to a better future? What opportunities have revealed themselves and what will it take for change to last? Join Stanford faculty as they engage each other in conversation around these thought-provoking, interdisciplinary questions informed by approaches in economics, earth system and environmental science, behavior and decision making science, and political science.
There will be optional talkback sessions with each speaker immediately following the webinar. Links for these sessions will be e-mailed the morning of the webinar to all registrants.
