Lessons From Pandemia Why trust and ethics are crucial for dealing with the climate emergency
October 28, 2020
/ Edouard Laurent
Under the backdrop of the Covid-19 pandemic, Swiss philosopher and environmentalist Dr. Augustin Fragnière examines what we can learn from the Corona-Crisis for tackling the far more dangerous climate emergency.

Join us as Augustin Fragnière reflects on the value of trust and ethics for combatting climate change.
Moderated by Lia Ettinger and David Dunetz from the Heschel Center for Sustainability
