EarthxTV Special: Health and the Environment – Can We Avoid Future Pandemics By Protecting Nature?

April 22, 2021 , 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm CDT

EarthxTV Special: Health and the Environment - Can We Avoid Future Pandemics By Protecting Nature?

EarthxTV Special: Health and the Environment – Can We Avoid Future Pandemics By Protecting Nature?

Thursday, April 22 | 3:00 – 4:00 PM CST (4:00 PM – 5:00 PM EST)

Duration: 30 min

Description: Environmental problems like rainforest destruction, illegally trafficking in wildlife and climate change seem far away. They are a cause of sadness but not for alarm- we think they don’t really affect us in our day to day lives. Nothing could be further from the truth.

The risk of spread of serious diseases is tightly linked to what we do to the natural world. Climate change, habitat destruction, and the elimination of certain species from the wild can have very real consequences to the health of people everywhere. So tight is this relationship that the World Health Organization’s number one recommendation for building back better after the pandemic is to protect and restore nature.

This docuseries will explain the parallels between the current pandemic and a pending environmental crisis in terms of impact on health conditions around the world.

Participant(s):

Dr. Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus | World Health Organization (WHO) Director-General

Dr. Maria Neira | Director of Environment, Climate Change, and Health | World Health Organization (WHO)

Dr. Raina Plowright | Associate Professor, Montana State University

Moderator(s):

Harvey Locke | Conservationist, Writer, and Photographer. Co-Founder of Nature Needs Half & Yellowstone to Yukon Conservation Initiative
