15th Asia Pacific Sociological Association 2020
Two-day Webinar on COVID-19, Climate, and Health

With the global pandemic of COVID-19, we are experiencing challenges in every sphere of our lives. Challenges are more prevalent among socially vulnerable groups; for example, the elderly, people with chronic disease or disabilities, and the poor. The APSA 2020 organised a two-day webinar to be held on October 6th and 7th. The broad themes of the Webinar are Covid-19 impacts on health and society; and Covid-19, Climate and City. Several distinguished scholars are presenting at the session. You are invited to participate and contribute to this conversation from a sociological perspective.
