Health and sustainability: Intersections and future directions
Published: 11 May 2022
Join us for an informal discussion exploring how social sciences can contribute to new research agendas seeking to bring together sustainability and health inequalities.
Thursday 1 December 2022, 10:00 – 11:30 **in person**
Studio 2, Advanced Research Centre
Supporting environmental sustainability and reducing health inequalities are two of society’s biggest challenges. Increasingly, we will have to understand how to work at the intersection of human and planetary health.
For example, how can we better understand and articulate the potential implications (risks or co-benefits) of actions designed to improve population health on climate mitigation (or vice versa) and what would this mean for food systems, transport and urban planning, economic models, and communicable and non-communicable diseases? And what are the relevant contributions of and impacts on different geographical regions?
This initial, informal conversation is designed to inform future work led by the College of Social Sciences exploring this area and developing new connections with colleagues within and beyond Glasgow.
Tea and coffee provided.
