  • The series aims to raise awareness on the importance of emergency risk mitigation in the context of environmental management.
  • How can we prevent future pandemics and human-driven environmental emergencies?
  • How should we manage the environment in a more pro-active and integrated fashion?

This is an event organised by the Steering Committee of SAGE, the Academy of Science of South Africa (ASSAf), the South African Young Academy of Science (SAYAS) and the Institute of Natural Resources (INR). We have assembled a diverse group of experts to provide a series of short talks (15 minutes each, with 4 speakers on each day) spread over four sessions. The series will end with a panel discussion focussed on what we can learn from the COVID-19 pandemic crisis to manage ourselves better and weather future storms in the Anthropocene.

Programme Facilitators: Prof Aliza le Roux and Dr Sershen Naidoo
