Please join our speakers Ska Keller and Joan Herrera for the first of a series of Green-Red Dialogues, where we reflect on current issues from a green and social perspective. This webinar will center around healthcare, in relation to both the COVID-19 and climate crises.
About the Event:
The first Green-Red Dialogue will address key issues such as health, basic income and the economy.
What health model allows us to face possible future pandemics? The European Union is diverse, and the member states have faced the crisis from different health models, which have proven to be more effective in this fight against the COVID-18? How can we work to make the health system of the member countries more efficient and inclusive?
This is a health crisis that today, more than ever, cannot be addressed without taking into account the link with the climate crisis. The model of consumption is linked to agri-food exploitation, which also causes the deforestation of the planet and in turn has consequences for our health. Should we ignore the fact that the macro animal farms have something to do with the origin of the COVID-19? And what about the air we breathe? How does it influence our health, our defences, and the increased vulnerability to severe symptoms of the coronavirus?
This event is part of the Green Red Dialogues. The main purpose of this series of talks is to reflect on current issues from a green and social perspective. At a time when we have to face the global challenges as a result of COVID-19, it is important to reflect on a green way out of the crisis.
