Our Health is on Fire – Global Conversation on Sustainable Health

The Centre of Excellence for Sustainable health (a collaboration between KI and Makerere University in Uganda) together with the International Federation of Medical Students Association are hosting an exciting seminar focusing on how climate change affects our health and how can we relieve the consequences. The event is organized in association with Stockholm +50. Stockholm+50 is convened by the United Nations and is hosted by Sweden with support from the Government of Kenya.

How does climate change affect our health and how can we relieve those consequences? IFMSA-Sweden and the Centre of Excellence for Sustainable Health will discuss this question by visualizing the existing health and climate-related crisis and holding a panel discussion with youth, researchers and policymakers from Sweden and Uganda.
