Climate Justice & Planetary Health: Stopping the Next Pandemic

04/11/2021 @ 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm

Join HIH Brazil Executive Coordinator, Marcelo Salazar, and Mighty Earth CEO, Glenn Hurowitz, in Right2Health Action’s webinar: Climate Justice & Planetary Health: Stopping the Next Pandemic.

Indigenous rainforest communities in Brazil are not only threatened by the devastating COVID-19 pandemic, but by wildfires, sociopolitical tumult, and threats to land ownership – and these issues are all connected. Preventing the next pandemic requires an integrated approach that addresses the needs of communities, ecosystems, and the planet.

Planetary Health models like ours must be widely implemented in order to prevent the pandemics of the future from ravaging communities around the world. Deforestation in Brazil could lead to the emergence of new diseases, as ecosystems are altered and wildlife comes into contact with neighboring communities.

Join Marcelo and Glenn to discuss how community-led prevention can stop the next pandemic before it happens.
