🌎 How can we build a more sustainable and resilient world in wake of the coronavirus crisis? Our home planet is spinning closer and closer to exceeding the 1.5 degrees global warming temperature. Climate change (crisis!) is not just on our doorsteps but has started entering our homes and cities.
While the world is under lockdown, there are some environment-related changes already, such as improvement in air quality, reductions in noise pollution, lower emissions of greenhouse gases. However, as economic activities pick up the pace, these improvements are likely to be reversed. Therefore, we need ideas to keep this positive change!
