Webinar Topic – Sustainable Future, Lessons from the Pandemic
The world needs to move towards sustainability and a circular economy. Climate Change, loss of biodiversity, air pollution are some of the warnings that we have been getting but not taking seriously.
The COVID-19 crisis has shown humanity how dealing with nature in a wrong way can bring the whole world to a standstill. We are in a position where the future of our cities, the future of education, relationship between us and nature needs to be revisited. It is a warning to us to move towards a sustainable lifestyle.
