New art-science events on health and nature – from 1st JulyPosted on 22.06.2021
We have just announced three new Forecast events on human health and our relationship with nature.
View the events on Thursday 1st July, Thursday 8th July and Friday 9th July here.
Covid has brought global health to the top of the world’s agenda and highlighted just how much human wellbeing relies on the health of our planet.
Whilst in recent years the dangerous impact that human behaviour has on planetary systems has become increasingly clear. So too have the ways that we can act to protect nature whilst protecting ourselves.
Join us for a series of lunchtime art-science discussions that will consider what shapes how we think about human health and the planet’s future.
We are thrilled to be joined by a range of leaders from different disciplines for these discussions.
Speakers announced so far include:
Peninah Murage, co-deputy director of the Centre on Climate Change and Planetary Health at the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine.
David King, former UK Chief Scientific Advisor and founder of the Cambridge Centre for Climate Repair and the new Climate Crisis Advisory Group
Frances Disley, a Liverpool-based artist whose recent Invisible Dust works for UnNatural History are a response to her local municipal park.
Emma Lawrance, the Mental Health Innovations Fellow at the Institute of Global Health Innovation, Imperial College London where she leads the climate change and mental health program Climate Cares.
Two final speakers will be announced in the coming days!
