Share Austerity, Warmth and Well-being: Connecting Fuel Poverty and Urban Health

Event Details

Fuel poverty discussions often focus on how low-income residents can pay their household energy bills in winter months. However, there are also significant health issues associated with living in cold conditions for long periods of time. Damp and draughty houses have negative impacts on the physical and mental health of occupants, particularly vulnerable populations of children and the elderly.

Please join cities@manchester for an Urban Forum focusing on the health aspects of fuel poverty. A panel of experts will provide insights on these interrelated problems, followed by a discussion with the audience, and an opportunity for informal socialising. Invited panelists include:

Pat Karney: Councillor, Manchester City Council
Arpana Varma: Institute of Population Health, University of Manchester
Paula Whittaker: Medical Practitioner
Damian Burton: SmartGreen Sustainability Limited
Sergio Tirado-Herrero: Centre for Urban Resilience and Energy, University of Manchester

This event is co-hosted by cities@manchester, the Institute of Population Health, and the Centre for Urban Resilience and Energy at the University of Manchester.
