Coverage of the ongoing climate crisis may have taken a back seat whilst we deal with the impact of a global health pandemic, but the crisis hasn’t gone away. With an overwhelming amount of data, information and misinformation, we’ve invited the experts to bring the hard facts and help us navigate what we can do to make a difference.
In this session, we’ll be covering important topics including the impacts of Covid-19 on the environment, how to deal with climate crisis news and looking after your mental wellbeing, what we can do as individuals and the small steps we can take, as well as super useful resources to take away. Whether you’re a novice or an avid campaigner, this session has something for everyone!
