    The Environmental Impact of Quarantine

    The Office of Student Affairs at Antonine University (UA) is organizing, in collaboration with the UA Green Club, a webinar tackling the effects of the COVID-19 quarantine around the world.
    While the pandemic that unfolds across the globe is threatening lives and upending the world economy, it has also a positive impact on the environment, that is to say helping us, humans, acknowledge and deal with a major environmental disaster, climate change, and disappearance of biodiversity. The being said planet Earth is, as a matter of fact, benefitting from the COVID-19 crisis, but one can also mention other negative effects:

    • the decrease in greenhouse gas emissions across the world that has been noticed by scientists;
    • the number of viral social media posts that started to pop up about wildlife sightings in urban areas, claiming “nature just hit the reset button on us;" and on a negative note
    • the dramatic rise in medical waste and packaging from online shopping.

    This webinar will be the opportunity to look at the full environmental impact of the COVID-19 crisis to date and reflect on what lessons we can take from this tragedy to fight climate change in the future.
