Bridging Ecology, Education, and The Economy beyond the COVID-19

Bridging ecology, education, and the economy beyond the COVID-19

Objective

We gradually but incessantly destroy the planet when the economy holds the most significant focus in our lives. Our views on three basic elemental concepts filled with evidence are often placed in the wrong order of priority: economy, education, and ecology. To assess how this reversal came to be, it is essential to acknowledge that we all exist within the Universe, which a scientist has termed as a united and coherent whole.

The present pandemic is without borders and has deeply shaken the lives of billions of people worldwide, living no economy or organization unaffected. The COVID-19 has significantly deteriorated existing health systems and supply chain, making unemployment and the economic outlook of the globe bleak. The pandemic has brought about severe consequences that are currently testing and undermining every nation’s preparedness and resilience. For those who have been at the forefront soliciting urgent action to reverse climatic conditions and heal the planet, the immense intensity and diverse challenges that the COVID-19 brings sounds familiar.

When the COVID-19 becomes a think of the past, and the sheds come off, nations will have to look closely at the level of habitat destructions, invasion into the only little wilderness we now have, chemical-based agricultural practices, and climatic change drivers. There will be measurements of the tremendous costs all of these has to the economy and human health. Therefore, foundations will be laid for economic, ecological, and educational practices to combat critical environmental issues across all boards and for a very long time. This edited guide will provide immense insights to students of economics, ecology, and, most significantly, environmental ethics, sustainable development, and environmental education.
