COVID-19: The view from Greenpeace

COVID-19: The view from Greenpeace

Posted on 12 Jun 2020

The need to act on the pandemic has meant new challenges for much of Greenpeace's core work. Our volunteers aren't out on the streets talking to people about environmental issues; politicians and companies are less open to meetings with our campaigners as they struggle with immediate priorities; many events that would usually be crucial to our fundraising have been cancelled or postponed. Meanwhile, governments are injecting trillions into the global economy to keep it afloat. With this unprecedented amount of money available it is our job to ensure that, rather than propping up old industries that are fuelling the climate and nature crisis, governments direct that money towards a greener, more resilient economy that puts people and the planet first.

COVID-19: The view from CHEM Trust

COVID-19: The view from CHEM Trust

Hormone disrupting chemicals can undermine the immune system, so the COVID-19 pandemic has really emphasised the need for CHEM Trust's work. Though we have not all been tested, the accepted science acknowledges that the vast majority of us have hormone-disrupting chemicals in our bodies. CHEM Trust is a classic modern online organisation; we have 11 people working remotely in four countries, so our daily modus operandi, though impacted by social distancing, is not totally disrupted. The pandemic has not slowed our work down, but has shown it’s more important than ever before.
