COVID-19’s impact on the planet in UP-CIFAL’s upcoming webinar

| Posted by UP Media and Public Relations Office


The global outbreak of COVID-19 reveals the fundamental tenets of the trade-off we consistently face: humans have unlimited needs, but the planet has a limited capacity to satisfy them.

To be able to balance both needs and resources, people must learn to transition to sustainable living practices. COVID-19 prompts changes in lifestyle, which can be a positive thing.

In the fifth installment of its webinar series, the University of the Philippines-International Training Centre for Authorities and Leaders Philippines (UP-CIFAL) is focusing on “Nurture Nature: Impacts of COVID-19 to the Planet and the People.”

This webinar, which will be held on Wednesday, 10 June 2020, , 14:00 (Manila time), aims to discuss the relationship between a sustainable planet and environment as well as responsible consumption and production by people during a pandemic. Speakers include:Vice President and COO Mark Gamboa of the Centre for Neighborhood Studies Philippines;Executive Director Ramon San Pascual of Health Care Without Harm Southeast Asia; Greenpeace Philippines campaigner Virginia Llorin; and national convenor Eah Antonio of 2030 Youth Force Philippines as moderator.
