Webinar: Driving Systemic Responses to the Climate and Health Crises
Mon, 12 October 2020 @ 14:00 – 16:00
This Driving Systemic Responses to the Climate and Health Crises roundtable event will focus on driving systemic responses to the climate and health crises. It will help shape a call to action, led by Walgreens Boots Alliance in partnership with Business in the Community (BITC), Malaria No More and Forum for the Future.
This roundtable is part of a series. This will explore the barriers that prevent solutions to the two important issues of climate and health.
Designed for representatives at practitioner/manager level from different organisations across the climate and health systems. This event is by invitation only and for BITC members.
The COVID-19 crisis shines a light on the interconnectivity of our own health and the systems we rely on. In the case of this pandemic, human health and economic health are inextricably linked. The same is true for climate and health. The climate emergency very likely to trigger a public health crisis in the years ahead.
Despite the systemic and interconnected nature of our climate and health challenges, there are too many businesses and other organisations still solving climate and health as separate issues. We are missing opportunities for designing transformational change that could drive multiple benefits across multiple systems.
As a leading actor in the health and climate debate, Walgreens Boots Alliance wants to lead an agenda designed to catalyse progress in human and planetary health.
BITC is asking business to be guided by the science and act now to respond to the climate change emergency.
BITC defines “wellbeing” as the mutually supportive relationship between an individual’s mental, physical, social and financial health and their personal wellbeing.
