Science for a healthy, just, and more sustainable world

Solutions-based research to shape climate actions that improve health and prevent future pandemics.

By making climate change personal, highlighting solutions, and emphasizing the important role we all play in driving change, the Center for Climate, Health, and the Global Environment at Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health (Harvard Chan C-CHANGE) puts health and equity at the center of climate actions.

Led by Dr. Aaron Bernstein, Harvard Chan C-CHANGE translates innovative research from faculty and students across Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health to help decision-makers understand the health consequences of our addiction to fossil fuels and shape the policies that help us lead more just, sustainable, and healthy lives.

From our landmark study on how coal impacts health at every stage of its life cycle, to our research measuring the health benefits of cutting transportation emissions, to our HarvardX course that has reached 150,000 students in more than 100 countries around the world, we have brought our work into the halls of Congress, newsrooms, hospitals, and kitchens around the country for over 25 years.
