Climate Change and Public Health | #ClimateOfChange Webinars

Let’s talk about climate change and public health. Join us for the second webinar of #climateofchange series, this time addressing the health implications of climate change. Join our panel of inspiring speakers to learn about and discuss how the health of the planet directly impacts our own physical and mental health, one of the least discussed unintended repercussions of climate change.

In this webinar we will address questions such as:
How is climate change affecting our health and how that varies across the globe?
What is the concept of planetary health?
How can public health and climate policies work together to advance gender equality?
What is eco-anxiety and eco-grief and why are they particularly relevant to youth?

Our speakers are:

  • Vijoleta Gordeljevic, a health economist and an experienced environmental health professional, currently working for the Health and Environment Alliance (HEAL) as Health and Climate Change Coordinator;
  • Dr Kathleen Mar, is the leader of the group Climate Action in National and International Processes (ClimAct) at Institute for Advanced Sustainability Studies (IASS). She is a Senior Associate at the Women Leaders for Planetary Health;
