The scale of the climate crisis is immense - and its repercussions are toxic to human health. Whether through rising temperatures, air pollution or changing patterns of disease, climate change is having a profound effect on our wellbeing.
A societal shift powered by innovation is needed. At this event, we’ll bring together academics and industry experts to explore ideas and what this environmental emergency means for human health. With a wide range of topics - from sustainable production to reducing air pollution - we hope to broaden discussion and realise the potential of multidisciplinary research to tackle the most pressing issue of our generation.
You will hear talks from several experts on Zoom together with a panel discussion.
