The climate crisis is a health crisis. Research shows that fossil fuel emissions not only impact the climate, but are a leading cause of death globally, claiming 9 million lives each year. Yet, too often, efforts to promote health, climate action and even STEM education operate in silos, without realizing their full potential for impact.
This session will explore innovative, no-cost and publicly-available tools that are being developed to help us better confront the effects of climate change on human health. Join speakers from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Harvard University TH Chan School of Public Health, The American Public Health Association, and Biogen for this informative and insightful discussion. It is designed for leading companies and brands, nonprofit champions, government innovators, activists and anyone who wants to accelerate impact at the intersection of some of the biggest issues of our time.
What you will learn about:
- A new state-of-the-art integrated model that predicts how various climate actions impact public health.
- A toolkit that helps health clinics use available resources to better manage patient care when facing increasingly common climate health effects.
- The work of a cross-sectoral coalition and the scientific community to better understand the relationship between the environment and human health, as well as the urgent actions needed to secure a livable future.
