During this session, speakers will highlight the crucial links between climate and health and opportunities for joint solutions by showcasing projects currently being designed and implemented by the London Mayor, national bodies and research teams.
We’ll hear about the urgent need to improve air quality, exciting work on city transport infrastructure and ultra low emission zones for active travel and air quality, planning for extreme weather events and climate adaptation plans as well as new research on the benefits of green spaces for mental health.
This event will be held online through Zoom Webinar and features three ten-minute presentations followed by a moderated Q&A session, during which the audience is invited to ask questions. We want this session to provide an opportunity for attendees to engage with these teams and shape future work to create healthier places for all.
