An exciting discussion and debate on the interconnections between human health and planetary health hosted by The Climate Group, in collaboration with The Rockefeller Foundation Economic Council on Planetary Health and Johnson and Johnson.
The health impacts from climate change are well documented. From the increased frequency and severity of heatwaves to the spread of tropical diseases, climate change is expected to place increased stress on human health over the coming decades. On its own, climate change will strain healthcare systems and budgets. However, many experts now see it as just one of a set of interconnected environmental challenges that threaten human health.
This event will bring together experts in the field of Planetary Health along with healthcare leaders from business and government to discuss and debate the economic and policy solutions that are required to address the health challenges and seize the opportunities presented by tackling climate change.
