Webinar: Healthy Cities in the Era of Climate Change

September 06, 2016 | Register now

"Climate change is the biggest global health threat of the 21st century,” according to the Lancet Commission on Health and Climate Change.

There is the good news: the same Commission has also concluded that “Tackling climate change could be the greatest global health opportunity of the 21st century.” Indeed, many of the actions we must take to mitigate climate change—reducing fossil fuel use; promoting walkable, bikeable cities; supporting sustainable, local agriculture—offer significant benefits for public health.

Hosted by Island Press and the Urban Resilience Project, the webinar features PHI's Linda Rudolph, the director of the Climate Change and Public Health Project in PHI's Center for Climate Change and Public Health. During the presentation, the panelists will explore the possibilities for “win-win” solutions to climate change and health.
