The climate crisis is a health crisis: how can innovation help?
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 the environmental emergency means for human health. With a wide range of topics - from sustainable production to reducing air pollution - we hope to broaden the discussion and realise the potential of multidisciplinary research to tackle the most pressing issue of our generation.
You will hear talks from several experts together with a panel discussion, followed by a networking session where food and drinks will be provided.
