The Relationship between Climate Change and Health and What You Can Do About It

November 4, 2021 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

Free

In this webinar led by University of Minnesota health sciences students, we will introduce the ways in which climate change and health intersect. The warming climate is affecting human and animal health in many ways, some of which are more obvious and some that are more subtle. Rising temperatures, droughts, pollution, increased storms, and wildfires have direct and indirect effects on the health and wellbeing of the people and creatures around us. After discussing these topics, we will end with ways in which we as community members can advocate for change to improve the health of humans, animals, and the planet.

In this webinar you will learn:
– The many ways in which health and climate change intersect
– How to advocate for change within the community
