As part of the first-ever Planetary Health Week 2021, the London School of Hygiene & Tropical Medicine (LSHTM) Centre on Climate Change and Planetary Health and the LSHTM Pathfinder Initiative are hosting a side event for the Planetary Health Alliance Annual Meeting and Festival.
Titled, ‘Creating feasible and effective pathways to a healthy, zero-carbon world: Evidence from real-world scenarios’, the event brings together a cross-disciplinary panel to discuss how to identify and communicate the health benefits of climate mitigation actions across a number of sectors.
We will discuss the exciting work of the Pathfinder Initiative, the Centre on Climate Change and Planetary Health and the World Organization of Family Doctors (WONCA) Working Party on the Environment.
Topics will include, the role of nature-based solutions in achieving net zero and a healthy future, the co-benefits of climate mitigation and adaptation in urban developments, the role of primary care health systems in delivering planetary health and the political economy of transformative strategies for planetary health.
This session features five expert speakers with Q&A, chaired and moderated by Amy Thomas, Climate Change and Planetary Health Communications Officer, LSHTM.
