Video recording and chat log


As COVID-19 continues to consume our daily lives and economies, governments and leaders are calling for a “green recovery.” The vision is bold, but will it work?

With economies opening up and emissions once again rising, we face decisions about infrastructure, industry and regulation that will have enduring impacts on our climate and our health. What do journalists need to know to cover these decisions and help the public understand the options and tradeoffs?

Join us Thursday, July 16 from 1-2:00 p.m. ET, for a #SEJ2020 webinar for journalists seeking a report on the connections between climate, COVID-19 and the economy, and the potential for a green recovery.

All journalists welcome.


  • Anne L. Kelly, Vice President of Government Relations, Ceres
