- Health and Human Rights in the Climate Crisis: Charting Challenges and Solutions
This conference will take the form of a series of keynote addresses, panel discussions and workshops over the period of 21-29 October 2021 and will be of interest to frontline health workers, human rights advocates, medical professionals, academics, researchers, policy advisors, NGOs and media professionals.
During the COVID-19 pandemic the world has shown its capacity to mobilise and act in the face of an unprecedented public health crisis. How can we build on this momentum to address the challenges arising from the threat of climate change and its impact on our health?
In the lead up to COP26, Health and Human Rights in the Climate Crisis: Charting Challenges and Solutions will showcase the research, policies and practice of experts in the fields of public health, climate science, law and human rights to support global developments to address climate change
Drawing on our shared experiences of increasing climate threats, including fire, floods and temperature rises, the conference will serve as a call to global governments to take urgent steps that recognise the link between the increasing burden on under-resourced public health systems, the exploitation of the natural world and altered climatic conditions.
*Tickets are inclusive of all conference sessions. Video links will be sent to registered ticket holders prior to the event.*

- Redefining Health: New Approaches for How We Live and Age
Every person–in every country around the world–should have the opportunity to live a long and healthy life. However, the COVID-19 pandemic has shed a spotlight on the weakness of systems designed to provide the basic foundations that nurture and secure healthy lives across the globe. What is clearer than ever is that health is foundational, and anything that makes it harder for us to get healthy, stay healthy, or recover when we are sick will increase disparities and inevitably widen the longevity gap.
We are now at a crossroads where we need to reassess, redefine, and reprioritize what health means in a world facing significant demographic shifts and longevity trends. To leverage this unprecedented growth, economies will need to invest in the health of an ageing population that is stronger, healthier, more skilled, and more adaptable.
As the trend of global ageing has accelerated, so should the solutions and strategies to harness this growth. We hope you can join this virtual convening with global thought leaders and innovators from a range of industries and organizations who are committed to advancing solutions and forming positive collaborations to build more equitable and healthy communities.
