I think changes in environmental behavior are short-lived and ineffective, and in the next six months, the old routine will be restored.

No, I cannot observe behavioral changes, concerning ecology; people try to comply with 'the virus rules' in public, but the materialist consumer society is still the leading global and local value system, i.e. the linear economy dominates in the whole world. A 'value shift' towards the circular economy will happen, but this economic process is still in its infancy.

Of course no. All actions of governments, organizations, companies, etc. now aimed at preserving and restoring of the formely existing realities (pre-covid...). Just talks.

It's true that lockdown in various countries have positive impact on environment and various recent articles have dealt this topic. It is the restrictions imposed by government during this pandemic time that lead to this change imo. However, I don't think there is a significant change in behavioural attitude of humans towards environment.

In Africa Covid 19 may not bring any change in environmental behavoiur change to population health due to its assoiated low virulence , with marked rambat corruption on Covid grants meant to provide PPEs for prevention and control, by MOH stakeholders. Then COVID 19 was a Public health problem but most countries Africa took it as a medical problems which has no cure update. in Africa specifically Sub Saharan Africa, Covid 19 may be by ambition and not reality, due to its eniviromental factors especially temperature and humidity that may make infectious agent les suscipitable to the host has noted in few deaths in long period of lockdown and curfews. impact will be realized on socialeconomic and education sector which was most heat.

COVID-19 will definitely lead us to a new behavior towards the environment. We have witnessed a positive change in our environment, less pollution and ozone layer recovery. As far as pollution is concerned, the world should now seriously focus on looking for alternative sources of fuels for transport, aviation and industries. This could potentially reduce the pollution once the activities of mankind on earth fully resume.

Actually I doubt it, unless social society is able to create enough pressure to maintain the ecologically healthy restrictions of the lockdowns and prevent global players to return to the status quo before the pandemic. It has to be stressed that it is not so much a question of (individual) behavior but rather of the globalized economic system which has to be revised and adjusted for safeguarding the ecologic release caused by COVID-19.

Where I am coming from ini Indonesia I can perceive changes at both ends of the spectrum - those individuals that are becoming even more disconnected from nature, and over using disinfectants in their immediate environment, in 顺心彩票s and in housing complexes. And creating so much more plastic waste due to post covid-19 consumption patterns and methods. On the other had there are people who are realizing there is a need to 're-wilder' and rehabilitate forest lands to become more diverse and more able to sustain wild-life so that zoonotic diseases do not increase in the future. But these people are the minority - yet determined to make change. It is clear though that traditional/indigenous communities who are still practicing sustainable agro-ecological systems in managing their land are much more able to ensure food security for themselves at the moment.

i think yes, this is because reduced movement due to local lock down and boundaries lock down has reduced the gases released to the atmosphere by all modes of transports. including marine environment has been improved due to this lock down caused by corona. the other thing is many industries were closed and this has reduced the wastes release to the land and atmosphere. yes corona has brought about the new age of environment behavior.

Mojtaba Khanian In the start of the lock down, one of the good effects that were visible were pollution free atmosphere. People have to think about the plastic accumalated in earth because of him, when he himself was forced to wrap inside protective equipments. Now, as lock down is being withdrawn slowly, environment again started to be full of smoke and dust

As we learn in and around us in our life since childhood, it imbibes this in future life in form of habits which die very hard. The pandemic undermines the current need of changes in social/ environmental and all sorts of spheres but it reminds us that people start forgetting due to passage of time. Therefore, it's quite important to continue the awareness drive among people to refresh and reorient about practice and behaviour.

I can only speak from personal perspective, and say that when my state (U.S.) locked down and my business closed, I had some time to meditate and garden for the first time in a decade, and ultimately decided to go back to school (in my 50s) and get my master's degree in environmental science, specifically bioremediation. I want a better world for my kids, and I was tired of just talking and not doing. I'm taking prerequisites in soil science and strengthening my math this year, as well as doing some lab tech work, to get ready for next fall's matriculation.

I believe that in the long term behaviors adopted by many, such as 顺心彩票 office or web conferences, can lead to a reduction in the emission of pollutants related to means of transport. In contrast, the feeling of vulnerability will increase the amount of waste related to the use of personal protective equipment.

Definitely there will be an impact, at least in short-term. May be a forceful one, as many industry entities will cope to regain pre-Covid outputs. However, there is also the factor or inter-fuel price competition: low oil and gas prices are not going to help RES expansion. Industry will fight to deliver, mostly no matter how. Overall, Covid is not an impact factor alone.
