Content of lecture
With a certain degree of idealization, we could mark 2019 as a year of environmental awakening or a year of environmental citizenship. The increasing impacts of the environmental crisis have led to mass activism and worldwide demonstrations against the lack of active approach of the political elites towards the environment, but also against the carelessness of individuals. However, this positive development has changed significantly since the beginning of 2020 as a result of the global spread of a new and imminent threat. The lecture focuses on analysing the concept of environmental citizenship and various views on it, as well as on examining the essence of the environmental citizenship and analyses its rapid rise over the year 2019. Consequently, we will discuss how the manifestations of the newly and massively acquired sense of belongness to the planet have changed with the emergence of the global pandemic. We will then also discuss how the COVID-19 generally influenced the environment and what is the needed task for environmental citizens in the post COVID-19 era.
