ONLINE RETREAT: COVID-19: Dress Rehearsal for the Climate Change Crisis?

10:00am - 12:00pm   |   retreat

When COVID-19 struck Iowa in March, Connie, who regularly writes and speaks on climate change, thought that a comparison of these two major crises would be worth examining. In doing so, she realized that the COVID-19 pandemic could be beneficial, if we allow it to reshape our climate-change mitigation efforts. Join her and others in a Zoom talk on the comparison, followed by time for you to ask questions on the talk and other questions you may have on climate change.
