Health as a lever for action on climate change

On the occasion of the French presidency of the Council of the European Union, Santé publique France and The International Association of National Public Health Institutes (IANPHI) organised a discussion day on climate change and public health on 8 April 2022. The event aimed to raise better awareness of the interlinkages between climate, biodiversity and health in public policies, and to encourage concrete actions at the local, national and European level to adapt to climate change.

The programme included interdisciplinary and intersectoral interventions on knowledge, debates on challenges and levers for action, and feedback from European cities working on climate, biodiversity and health.

You can replay the sessions on YouTube. The videos which focus on climate change adaptation are the following:
