      You and the planet: the new normal

      *We will be collecting audience questions to guide the conversation on the night so please do submit yours here: https://forms.royalsociety.org/s/speakerquestions_yatp/

      Combating climate change and protecting global biodiversity was at the top of the world’s agenda before COVID-19 struck. And, while battling the pandemic remains at the forefront of global efforts, the climate crisis has not gone away.

      With the world on lockdown, rapid changes in how society functions and travels have revealed some promising climate benefits, from falling carbon emissions to nature reclaiming land. People have had to change how they live and this presents an unprecedented opportunity to take greener and more sustainable steps forward.

      Moving towards a green economy where sustainability and climate resilience are a higher priority is crucial. At the heart of this transition should be people and the places they occupy, to ensure the benefits are shared, and that decisions that affect the many are not just taken by the few.

      Join our panel of experts as they discuss the so-called just transition and, as society emerges into the “new normal”, the opportunity we are presented with for a fair green recovery.

      This event is being held in partnership with The British Academy.
