The COVID-19 pandemic highlighted the role of humans on damaging nature and biodiversity. Not only did we see a quick positive impact of the few weeks of lockdown and the slowing of human activities on air quality for instance, but we also discovered that destroying nature can lead to the development of zoonotic diseases.

This event therefore aims at providing information on the concrete impact of climate change on our societies, and what actions can and should be taken through a design thinking workshop. Youth involvement will be central in taking concrete actions, which is why it is important to involve everyone in these discussions.
