During 2020 there are 3 stories in the making.
The most urgent is the story of Coronavirus. More than 1 million people infected with close to 100 thousand deaths, a crisis exacerbated by globalization showing the entire world how powerful a virus can be and how quickly everything can shift.
The most important is the story of Climate Change. The world is entering the last decade humankind has to change its habits and guarantee a climate that still supports life on Earth. Simply said, that’s the last chance the planet is giving people to decide whether the future generation will have a home, or not.
The greatest is the story of Communities, because people represent the key element to every story. When it comes to Coronavirus and Climate Change, Communities have the power to change the course of history.
What are the lessons from Coronavirus that Communities can apply to the fight against Climate Change? Join the Webinar where Plan A together with Climate KIC and Global Fashion Exchange will discuss the findings from the crisis that made nations rethink habits and patterns of behaviours.
