2022 Lancet Countdown in Europe report launch

The launch event of the first indicator report of the Lancet Countdown in Europe (published in the Lancet Public Health in October 2022) will discuss the latest evidence on how climate change is undermining the foundations of good health, as well as detailing the health benefits of a rapid and robust response to climate change in Europe.
Oct 27, 2022 from 11:00 AM to 01:00 PM (Europe/Copenhagen / UTC200)

Next to presenting evidence on how climate change affects health in Europe, the event will also highlight the gaps the new Lancet Countdown in Europe initiative fills at the local and regional level, and discuss the new Lancet Countdown Europe policy brief. By bringing together leading academics and policymakers with wide-ranging expertise and experience, this event provides a platform to contextualise climate change and health in a European context.

The Lancet Countdown in Europe report includes 33 policy-relevant indicators, tracking progress on health and climate change across five domains: impacts, exposures, and vulnerabilities; adaptation and resilience; mitigation actions and health co-benefits; economics and finance; political engagement. If climate mitigation and adaptation plans are designed and implemented with health, wellbeing, and equity at the core, this could represent the biggest public health policy opportunity of the century. Ambitious European adaptation and mitigation strategies will not only protect lives and wellbeing in Europe, but also in countries that have historically contributed least to anthropogenic climate change.
