Dialogue Forum 3: Ending Wildlife Trade and Habitat Exploitation in Post COVID-19 Our Wild, Our Climate (in Thai)
30 June, 2020 @ 1:00 pm - 3:30 pm
During the Coronavirus pandemic, what has become clear in sight is the improved state of the environment worldwide.
Since the governments have imposed restriction as well as lockdown measures in several parts of the world, the state of the environment in many areas, from the air to the oceans and to our forests, has improved significantly in the absence of human beings. Though temporary, this has suggested the way people can do for the environment, which deeply interconnects with their economy and lifestyle.
Scientists as well as economists worldwide have started to explore such the new path that leads to a more sustainable lifestyle and economy, and the ending of wildlife trade and habitat exploitation and One Health concept are strongly being called for, along with climate and green new deals.
Whether humans can turn this crisis into a golden chance to live in harmony with the nature again is thus challenging and worth exploring here and worldwide.
The Dialogue Forum, a monthly forum by Bangkok Tribune and its partners to “bridge the gap” and “connect the dots” of different views and opinions as well as bits of information on social and environmental issues to create one big picture for better understanding in society, would cordially like to invite you to participate to explore the new proposals together in its Dialogue Forum 3: Ending Wildlife Trade and Habitat Exploitation in Post COVID-19, Our Wild, Our Climate (Green Post COVID-19 Theme).
