Details

Date & Time:
September 16
11:00 am - 12:30 pm EDT
Add to Calendar September 16 11:00 am September 16 12:30 pm America/New_York Local Solutions For Global Recovery: Taking On Climate, Covid, And Health Inequity

As the world responds to both the COVID-19 pandemic and the climate crisis, we find ourselves at a crossroads. One path takes us back in the direction we came, propping up old, unjust systems that have led to this moment of compound health, ecological, social, political, and economic crises. The other path leads toward an opportunity to forge a just transition to a more equitable, resilient society that provides dignified work for all, universal health care, and a healthy climate.

Around the globe, local leaders are helping blaze this second path. As many around the world rise up against systemic racism and discrimination, a movement is emerging to forge a broad, interconnected agenda for fundamental change that fosters health equity, ecological sustainability, and social justice.

Join Health Care Without Harm and the Skoll Foundation for an enlightening and engaging interactive session open to all. In addition to hearing from a top WHO official and front-line leaders from the United States, India, and South Africa, you’ll have an opportunity to share your own ideas about the challenges and opportunities at the critical intersections of health, climate, and justice. Together, we’ll work toward a more resilient and just world.
