PHABC Summer School: Public Health and the Anthropocene

  • Registration is Now Open for the Public Health Association of BC summer school.  According to the PHABC "The Anthropocene is arguably the greatest threat to health in the 21st century, barring nuclear war. In order to significantly reduce our ecological footprint, a profound transformation of our society, economy and entire way of life needs to be realized. Yet at the same time we want to maintain a good quality of life and good health for all, and we want the transition to a ‘One Planet’ society to be socially just, and not increase health inequity. This has important implications for population and public health practice, at all levels from the local to the global. Our intent is to locate this year’s summer school in this global ecological context, while grounding it in local public health action and linking it to the emerging debate about the need for transformative societal change and a just transition to a sustainable ‘One Planet’ society."
