Event details

There is no doubt that the past few months have seen a dramatic change in the way we live our lives. The COVID-19 pandemic has had a worldwide impact, with thousands of people dying, countless more falling ill, and a global economy that remains in a continuous state of uncertainty.

While the social distancing and lockdown measures we have all become used to are intended to reduce the spread of the virus, we are also seeing positive environmental impacts as a result of these changes, with recently published data showing 17% decreased daily carbon emissions, 11.4% increased air quality and thriving wildlife populations. So, how can we maximise these environmental benefits?

Join our professors and academics as they discuss the published data and describe actions we can all take to deliver the greatest positive effects to our environment.
