Spanish/English interpretation will be available

In this conversation we want to re-focus our attention on why this health and climate crisis started, and how new pandemics can and should be prevented in the future, looking at humankind’s relation with nature. We shall hear from experts what alternative models need to be introduced, and about some of the practical cases in which alternatives are already being implemented.

We will also hear from the speakers and discuss what are the different ways to influence policymakers and relevant stakeholders into shifting from this techno-industrial focused approach to a more holistic solution that focuses on planetary and community health.
