Media Dialogue 2:

The State of the Environment in Post-COVID 19: Our Wild, Our Climate

Facebook Live from SEA-Junction | Thursday, June 18, 2020 | 13:00 – 15:30 (BKK Time)

 

Amid the COVID-19 pandemic, human mobility and economic activity have dropped in opposition to the indispensable use of plastic for medical supplies. The drop of greenhouse gas emissions during the lockdown offered some short-term relief for the environment. But emergency measures to address a health crisis can of course not be the right way to introduce environmental and climate resilience into all levels of policymaking. The phenomenon, though, could still lead the world to rethink and achieve more global sustainability. One fundamental idea emerging worldwide in the wake of the coronavirus outbreak is that economic recovery, growth, and job creation on one side and environmental protection and climate change mitigation on the other side are not antagonistic concepts. The current crisis represents a unique opportunity to make progress on both sides.

The news agency Bangkok Tribune, supported by the Konrad-Adenauer-Stiftung in Thailand, is organizing an online conference to discuss and explore new paths in terms of environmental sustainability and climate protection after the coronavirus outbreak. This is in the hope that tomorrow’s society can live in harmony with the nature through green and sustainability-oriented innovations and policies.

This conference is the second of a series of Media Dialogues on current Thai, regional, and global developments organized by the Bangkok Tribune and the KAS. It will take place on Thursday, June 18 at 13:00 (Bangkok Time) via Facebook Live from SEA-Junction, Bangkok Art and Culture Centre (BACC), and will be conducted in Thai language.

To participate in the conference, please send an email to Thasuthida.thetthong@kas.de. After registering, you will receive a confirmation email containing information about joining the conference either online or at the venue (in accordance with social distancing measures), and how to take part in the Q&A sessions with the panellists.
