This talk will explore the role that human health ‘co-benefits’ can play in decisions about climate mitigation policy. It will discuss the potential for health co-benefits to motivate climate action and simultaneously improve public health, as well as their limitations in doing so. Issues of health and environmental equity will be a key focus throughout the talk.
This webinar is co-hosted by the Center for the Environment and Health at Massachusetts General Hospital and the MGH Institute of Health Professions (IHP) Center for Climate Change, Climate Justice, and Health.
