As we seek to overcome this terrible pandemic, we must do so in the knowledge that it is not something that we can just fix, wash our hands of, and return to normal. Why? Because it is normal that brought us where we are today. UNEP’s Inger Andersen on why we must rethink our relationship with nature.
The story of the all-female Black Mambas in South Africa is an example of community leadership in the country’s most famous game reserve. It shows how leaders can flourish at any level. Named after the poisonous snake, the Black Mambas take the enormous risks. They combat wildlife poaching unarmed. They have lessons for us all.
To understand and manage risks goes well beyond identifying what they are. Psychological and social factors shape our attitudes. Peter Ho’s analysis of the human tendency to underestimate or overestimate risk.
