Climate Migration and Potential Health Impacts

October 20 @ 12:00 pm - 1:30 pm

Engage in the discussion of the nexus between climate migration and its health impacts. This interactive panel webinar will look at migration as a consequence of environmental changes and how it can affect health issues. 

Through select case studies, this discussion will shed light on migration as a form of internal displacement from rural to urban areas as well as an international movement. The focus will be placed on the impact on children, their health, and lifestyles due to migration caused by climate change. The SDG Goals 3, 4, 6 and 16 play a crucial role in addressing this issue and will be  taken a closer look at during the webinar. 

This 90-minute conversation event will be on October 20, 2021, at 12 pm EDT. Please use the Time Zone Converter to determine when this engaging conversation will be in your time zone.
