    This section's program will focus on understanding the lessons from COVID-19 as instructive for addressing the fundamental threat to child well-being caused by climate change. What has been laid bare during the pandemic is the precariousness of various systems of care – economic, health, education, political, and justice – and how vulnerable these systems, and the people they serve, are under the strain of natural or manmade stressors. We aim to bring together various voices on child well-being, utilizing an intersectional and interdisciplinary lens to explore the risks that the pandemic has exposed and calls for action.
