Join the Centre for Global Health, DLSPH, and the Centre for Sustainable Health Systems, IHPME for a panel discussion on the links between the environment and public health in the context of COVID-19.
The COVID-19 pandemic has clearly disrupted our economic, social and health systems. But it had also shown us the benefits of reducing our consumption patterns, which if sustained, can have positive effects on the health of our planet. Unlike COVID-19, climate change is not a new global emergency.
During this webinar, the global, political and economic drivers of climate change and environmental degradation will be discussed, alongside the relationship between infectious disease patterns and climate change. The role of different sectors, including the health sector in responding to these crises through environmentally sustainable solutions will also be discussed.
