A webinar at The George Institute for Global Health on “The intersectoral action needed for the future health of people and planet”

Global environmental change is the greatest global threat facing the world in the 21st century, but it is also the greatest opportunity to redefine the commercial, social, political and environmental determinants of health, and to redress related inequities within and across countries and communities. The webinar considered what intersectoral action and approaches are needed to secure the future health of people and planet, in particular to both adapt to – and mitigate – the consequences of global environmental change.
