Animals Climate Health is hosting a webinar series happening over the next few months. They are looking to bring together a diverse audience of people interested in animal studies, critical animal studies, animal ethics, animal politics, animal law, environmental studies, environmental law, migration studies, as well as climate law/studies. The sessions are free and will take place over Zoom.
Executive Director Mia MacDonald will be a speaker in Session 1: Animals, Pandemics and Global Health. This session will explore how human use of wild and domestic animals for food, together with environmental destruction and habitat loss, leads to an increase in zoonotic diseases with high potential to turn into epi- and pandemics. It will discuss the consequences for global human and animal health and wellbeing, including: What role does industrial animal agriculture play? How can we prevent the future development of zoonoses that may turn into epi- and pandemics? Michael Greger and Astra Taylor will also be speaking, with Jan Dutkiewicz moderating. It takes place on September 18th. You can register here.
