CREA Webinar Series: Clean Energy and COVID-19 – Green Priorities for the Economic Recovery

June 4 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm

"Webinar Series: Clean Energy and COVID-19"

Join this eCornell Keynote webinar hosted by Cornell’s Center for Regional Economic Advancement and Cornell’s ILR School.

Event Overview

The COVID-19 global pandemic has caused sectors of manufacturing, travel, and other work to grind to a halt worldwide. This pause has resulted in significant changes to energy use and carbon emissions. With lockdowns now being lifted, more and more businesses will reopen and we’ll all try to return to our normal social and travel activities.

But the climate crisis will still be waiting for us when the pandemic ends, and it’s our responsibility to ensure that economic recovery is done with the health of the planet in mind. Can we balance clean energy goals with the need to rebuild our economies? Should we be focused on returning to “normal,” or can we instead see this as an opportunity to progress toward “better”?

This panel of clean energy planners, policy influencers, and leaders will detail some of the most important clean energy efforts and goals to focus on during the next year amid the ongoing pandemic and recovery.
