Communities, Climate Change, and Health Equity – A New Vision
This virtual workshop, the first in a four-part series, is hosted by the Environmental Health Matters Initiative at the National Academies.
As the climate crisis intensifies extreme weather events, increases global temperatures, and accelerates sea level rise, communities least able to respond are bearing the largest burden.
This two-day virtual workshop will bring together people with lived experience, environmental health experts, resilience practitioners, and climate scientists to outline the disproportionate impact that climate change has on communities experiencing health disparities and environmental injustice.
The workshop will address three critical questions: Where are we now? How did we get here? Where do we want to go? Speakers and participants will share their visions for the future and suggest specific policies decision-makers can implement today to address the intersecting crises of climate change and health inequity.
This workshop, the first in a four-part series, will take place on Tuesday, October 12 from 11:00 AM – 4:00 PM (ET) and Thursday, October 14 from 12:00 PM – 4:00 PM (ET). This workshop is public and free to attend.
