If much of the world can work together to beat a deadly pandemic, imagine what might happen if we turned our collective energy to tackling the climate crisis.

The devastating summer of Australian bush fires underlined the terrifying sense of a world pushed to the brink. Then came Covid-19, and with it another dramatic shift. Fears have been raised that the all-consuming effort to control the pandemic will distract us from the long-term challenge of limiting catastrophic climate change. At the same time, many people are hoping for a post-pandemic ‘new normal’: a cleaner, greener, fairer and safer world.

This BWB Text brings together researchers, commentators, activists and writers to bear witness to the current crisis. What life-changing events have they experienced as individuals deeply engaged in climate issues? What are people fearing and hoping for in the uncertain years to come?
