As health professionals, we can take an active role in building a healthy planetary future. We can learn about the health manifestations of climate change, connect with our colleagues, and learn what actions we can take for our climate.
On Saturday, October 28, CAPE is hosting a day-long virtual conference focused on the intersection of health and the climate. This accredited medical conference is open to physicians, health professionals, and everyone else interested in promoting planetary health.
The Climate Emergency Conference: Building a Healthy Planetary Future brings together health experts who are initiating changes at the local level, the national level and internationally. In addition to learning about climate issues, we hope to inspire others to make changes both within the medical community and in the world at large. You will have opportunities to interact with the speakers and with other registrants. Learn more and register.
This is your chance to be connected with a community of professionals who share your goals.
Our speakers include Bill McKibben, a founder of the climate movement and author of ‘Eaarth’, Dr. Diarmid Campbell-Lendrum, who leads the Climate Change and Health Unit at the World Health Organization, CAPE President Dr. Melissa Lem who will share what’s new in nature prescribing, and Dr. Kathleen Ross who will discuss initiatives being undertaken by the Canadian Medical Association to sustain a healthy medical society.
