Unprecedented events have thrust us to re-examine how we live. Not only our healthcare, but all the interlinked systems that meet our daily needs and even what we really want in life. In a world under threat from global health concerns, economic challenges and biodiversity loss and climate change, our living and lifestyle decisions will (collectively) determine our future. How can we better understand the impacts of what we need and want and find new ways for everyone to live healthy, better, and lighter? We need the evidence, new people centric models and to effectively tap into the power of people.

Join global experts, UNEP, the One Planet Network for this kick-off webinar in the series Sustainable Living 1.5: Empowering people to live better and lighter. Experts from research, business and media will offer their visions on: What is sustainable living and COVID19 trends? How can business contribute to building back better with a people centric approach? How can media motivate the needed transformational change? These insights set the stage for the broader series webinars that will inspire participants to drive change, highlight real ways for more sustainable living; and provide evidence and messages for action.

This webinar aims to provide visionary insights on sustainable living in a COVD19 context and introduce the broader webinar series.
