Lancet Lecture - Action on Climate Change for a Healthier World

23 November 2016

This years's UCL Lancet Lecture was delivered by Christiana Figueres, former UN Framework Convention on Climate Change chief, on the need to tackle climate change to protect & improve health.

The Q&A after Mrs Figueres' speech was lively and it was clear that many in the audience were inspired to think about what they could do in their personal and professional lives to tackle climate change.
