The COVID-19 pandemic has caused a crisis unlike any other in living memory. It has also exposed the consequences of failing to prepare for catastrophic risk on a global scale. Both pandemics and climate change act as threat multipliers that amplify risks to global political stability, economic security and social welfare, while generating profound uncertainty around when and how they will occur. In our May 18 webinar, Alice Hill of the Council on Foreign Relations will explore the vast similarities between climate change and pandemics, and reveal how the world’s response to COVID-19 offers critical insights into how countries and communities can prepare for the worsening impacts of climate change.

This webinar will be recorded! When you sign up on Zoom, you'll be able to join live and you'll receive an email with a link to the recording as son as it's ready.

BONUS: When you sign up online, you'll automatically be entered to win a free copy of Alice's book, "Building A Resilient Tomorrow: How To Prepare for the Coming Climate Disruption." If you'd like to join the webinar but opt out of the drawing, email Kristen Minogue at minoguek@si.edu.
