Jordi Sunyer: ‘The climate crisis will be more severe than this pandemic’
Interview with the head of the ISGlobal Childhood and Environment program and professor of Preventive Medicine and Public Health at Pompeu Fabra University
The confinement due to the crisis of the coronavirus 2.019 has reduced circulation to historical maximums and rebound has cleaned the horizons of the big cities. For Jordi Sunyer (Barcelona, 1957), head of the ISGlobal Childhood and Environment program and expert in the effects of air pollution, the current situation is proof that a low-emission society is possible. However, this idyllic image is threatened by the relaxation of restrictions and the resumption of economic activity. We talked to him about the decrease in pollution, possible interventions for sustainable mobility, lack of confidence and climate change.
