Join us for a panel discussion on the effects of climate change on health, and explore the role of the built environment in mitigating these issues.
The effects of climate change are steadily becoming more prevalent in our lives. Between extreme weather events, shifting seasons, and our cities’ efforts at preparedness and resiliency, populations are impacted the world over. Vulnerable populations are disproportionately affected as they live in more precarious locations, in inadequate housing and in poorly supported communities with fragile economic means. These communities are increasingly displaced and, between worldwide human migration and globalization, new diseases are being introduced to new geographical regions where immunity and the capacity to detect and treat the problem is often inadequate and overburdened. The built environment has the potential to ameliorate or exacerbate these problems but remaining neutral is no longer an option.
