About this event

Climate change and health: Societal vulnerabilities and opportunities

Date: Wednesday 14 July 2021

Time: 10:00 - 13:00 BST

Location: Hosted online via Zoom

This networking workshop presents an opportunity for GW4 researchers to meet and share trans-disciplinary ideas around the priority area of climate and health.

The challenges at the nexus of climate change and health are multi-faceted and complex. Participants will discuss existing and future societal vulnerabilities and opportunities, acknowledging pervasive inequalities in health outcomes and environmental exposures related to climate change.

The theme is intentionally broad to encourage ideas that combine perspectives from diverse disciplines, including (but not limited to) the arts and humanities, social sciences, and STEM. Topics to be discussed in smaller breakout groups during the workshop include: nature-based solutions; health and environmental inequalities; non-human health; and big data/AI approaches.

The online event will feature guest speakers, networking across institutions, discussions around key themes in Climate and Health and will ask how can we make a difference?

Attendees will have the opportunity to apply for dedicated EPSRC Impact Acceleration Accounts (IAA) funding for cross-institutional projects (up to £5k for each institutions), following the workshop. Projects must include research staff from at least 2 GW4 institutions, ideally should be inter-disciplinary, and must build on previous EPSRC-funded research. Further details and an application pack will be available nearer the time.

This is an inclusive event. Research staff from under-represented groups and Early Career Researchers are particularly welcome. Please let us know if you have any accessibility requirements or would like to receive information in a particular format at booking stage, or by contacting the organisers.

Places are limited, so please book early to avoid disappointment!

This event is funded by the EPSRC Impact Acceleration Account (IAA) at the GW4 Universities of Bath, Bristol, Cardiff and Exeter.

More information and the opportunity to join the GW4 Climate Alliance community can be found on the GW4 Climate Alliance website.
