Putting Health at the Heart of Climate Conversations — with Dr. Katharine Hayhoe

September 28th, 2023 @ 1:00 pm - 1:50 pm

Climate change puts everyone at risk; yet many remain unaware of its immediate effects on their lives and how they can contribute to climate action. Clearly communicating the health implications of climate change offers a unique opportunity to bridge the psychological distance that often disconnects people from this global crisis. At the same time, however, it is essential to pair information about risks with actionable solutions, addressing the lack of efficacy that leads many of those worried about climate change to feel helpless and disempowered. Join Katharine Hayhoe as she discusses the pivotal role of health-related climate impacts in engaging and activating people to advocate for a better future for us all.
