Environmental and climate change, accelerated by human activities, are degrading the quality of air, soil, and increasing temperatures causing extreme weather conditions. These phenomena affect mental health and wellbeing, food systems, occupational health, and labour productivity.
While environmental challenges pose a great threat to health, there is significant potential for well-targeted mitigation and adaptation policies to reduce environmental impacts, protect and improve human health, strengthen health systems and community resilience, and progress towards a healthier, fairer and more sustainable world. You are invited to join the discussion.
This free event is convened by The Centre for Health in All Policies Research Translation (CHiAPRT) and the Healthy Environments and Lives (HEAL) Network.
