Our cities shape our health, from the air we breathe, to the buildings we live in, to our access to open spaces, transport, and public services. Climate change threatens to undo years of progress in public health and sustainable development and, within the urban space itself, dramatic differences between urban communities are widening health inequalities.

Watch this webinar to hear from urban health and climate change experts as we explore how urban characteristics can influence health and disease in the urban context.

Speakers: Prof David Osrin (Institute for Global Health), Dr Marina Romanello (Institute for Global Health), Dr Helen Pineo (Institute for Environmental Design and Engineering) and Vicky Hobart (Greater London Authority).

Public Health Voices Webinar Series

‘Public Health Voices’ is a webinar series, open to all, which aims to engage with and showcase the importance of interdisciplinarity in public health research and training. By working together with multiple disciplines, and in collaboration with local communities, local government, the NHS, the third sector, and industry, we can have a real impact on public health research and practice. Find out more about our upcoming events here.

The topics that will be explored in this webinar series illustrate the key themes of our new, innovative online Master of Public Health (MPH) programme: interdisciplinarity, inequalities, citizen voices, practitioner voices, core public health skills, implementation, action, and impact.
