Just last week, when things seemed funnier, a meme made the rounds: Climate change needs to hire coronavirus’s PR firm.
Certainly, we’ve witnessed what can happen when there is community and political will for rapid change in the face of a public health threat — with scientists calling for urgency — that puts human lives, food supplies, and mental health at stake. “Sound familiar?” asks Fast Company.
We’re all #StuckAtHome, but that doesn’t have to mean we have to be stuck in old ways. We have demonstrated that we can pull together for the greater good and our health as a planet. COVID-19 can teach us. It gives us the chance to ask: What’s important? Who do we want to be? What do we want of (and for) our world? Are we ready to make longer-term changes that climate change asks of us?
