Join us on Monday 4 May for a live streamed conversation with European experts on caring for the planet, following the drop in gas emissions due to coronavirus containment measures.

Environmental pollution has fallen significantly since governments across Europe implemented stay-at-home policies. Nitrogen dioxide levels in some European capitals have more than halved.

Guests during the live discussion will reflect on climate change, its impact on human life and how the COVID-19 pandemic could shape our future.

Climate care: remote life, better life? will take place at 17:00 CEST on 4 May. Watch live on ESA Web TV:

Guests include:

  • Josef Aschbacher, Director of Earth Observation Programmes, ESA
  • Jakob Blasel, Fridays for Future
  • Alfredo Roma, Economist and Consultant
  • Paolo Vineis, Professor of Environmental Epidemiology, Imperial College London
  • Jan Wörner, ESA Director General

The discussion will be moderated by Donatella Ponziani, Downstream Gateway Officer at ESA.

You can pose questions during the hour-long webinar using the hashtag #AskESA on social media.
