Discussion: Health Inequalities and Climate Change
Tue 18 October 2016, 18:30 – 21:00 BST
An event as part of Bristol Healthy City Week.
People on low incomes often use the least energy and are therefore the least responsible for climate change. However, they often pay more for their energy than others and may need to use more energy to heat their homes sufficiently to prevent poor health. How can we tackle climate change whilst also taking into account health inequalities and people’s different needs?
