INZEB: Health in a Changing Climate: Navigating the Future of Public Health

April 19 @ 16:00 - 17:30


The intersection of public health, health outcomes, and climate change presents one of the most pressing challenges of our time. The World Health Organisation (WHO) identifies climate change as a significant and emerging threat to public health, citing increased risks of extreme weather events, altered patterns of infectious diseases, and challenges to food security and water sources.  The urgency to address these issues cannot be overstated, as our planet’s health directly impacts its inhabitants’ health.


Under this context, INZEB, the Country Coordinator for Greece for the EU Climate Pact, is organising the online event “Health in a Changing Climate: Navigating the Future of Public Health” on Friday, April 19, 2024, from 16.00 to 17.30 (EEST). The event aims to:


  • provide an opportunity to present research results and practical examples showcasing the impact of climatic variations on human health, such as the spread of diseases, food and water security, and air quality.
  • showcase creative and sustainable health interventions that address the negative impacts of climate change on health, with an emphasis on adaptation and resilience development in vulnerable populations.
  • stimulate discussions and collaboration among public health professionals, climate scientists, policymakers, and community leaders to develop integrated approaches to addressing the health effects of climate change.


This event will provide participants with access to the latest research and practical examples demonstrating how climate change affects public health. This includes insights into the spread of infectious diseases, food and water security, and air quality, as well as information on innovative approaches to mitigate the impacts of climate change on health.


The event will be held in Greek.
