In this lecture, Blake Poland, Associate Professor in the Dalla Lana School of Public Health at the University of Toronto, will explore four emerging threats to health equity, arguing that the challenge facing humanity is social, not technical. Unpacking our assumptions about social change, and the ways we’ve tended to approach environmental issues, he will explore how we can build community resilience and participate in midwifing the transition to deep sustainability that is arguably already underway. Implications for practitioners, researchers, policy makers and activists will be explored.
