Join Ali Rae in this first episode of ‘All Hail The Lockdown‘ – a 5 part series exploring the complexities of our global response to the COVID-19 pandemic.

In the final episode, Ali speaks with prominent British writer and environmental activist George Monbiot and Brazilian environmental filmmaker Eliane Brum about the links between COVID-19 and our wider ecological crisis.

She also speaks with human ecologist William E. Rees, co-creator of the ‘ecological footprint’ concept, to discuss global resource scarcity, habitat fragmentation and why the coronavirus is the wake-up call that can’t be ignored.
