Our Times are Crisis: COVID, Climate & Disaster Solutions
Originally aired on October 31
Re-release November 30
Authors and experts in candid, live conversation reflect on the topics that matter most during this unprecedented time. Join us for a panel discussion that looks forward, asking questions many of us have had while facing a global pandemic and ever-increasing climate change concerns. When crisis becomes our everyday, what does our future look like? Published panelists Katherine E. Browne, Laurian Farrell and moderator Scott G. Knowles will explore how various cultures in different historical moments have responded to calamity to compare with current social adaptation in the context of disaster recovery, risk reduction and human resilience.
Tune in each day of the Festival to hear new speakers in critical conversation about the topics shaping today’s world.
The audio from this event will be available later on the CovidCalls podcast, hosted by the conversation’s moderator, Scott G. Knowles.
