Planetary health: how climate change and biodiversity loss change the equation –Professor Pim Martens
Our dominant current socio-economic and political systems have become decoupled from the larger ecology of life, and our relationship with our natural environment and the animals within has changed dramatically. This has led to various outbreaks of vector-borne and zoonotic diseases – with COVID-19 as the hard lesson learned (or not?). In this lecture, Pim Martens, Professor of Planetary Health at Maastricht University, will discuss the complexities and connections between our own well-being and that of the animals with whom we live, and global environmental changes like climate change and biodiversity loss. This guest lecture is hosted by the Pro Vice-Chancellor: Climate, Sustainability and Inequality at Wits University, Wits Rural Knowledge Hub and MRC/WITS Agincourt Unit. Or watch online via link.
