Global Health in a Changing Environment: A Conversation with Doctors Without Borders/Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF) Canada

May 18 @ 6:30 pm - 7:30 pm

Global Health in a Changing Environment: A Conversation with Doctors Without Borders/Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF) Canada

Special Guest: Emily Fister from the David Suzuki Foundation

 

 

 

As the speed and trajectory of climate warming accelerates, human health is increasingly impacted. This creates both urgent humanitarian concerns and opportunities for individuals, societies and communities to respond. For decades, MSF has been providing humanitarian assistance to people impacted by war, epidemics, and natural and human-caused crises.

To better prepare for the humanitarian work ahead in our changing environment, we require collaboration, innovation and local and global dialogue and action.

 

Join us for a conversation, to explore questions and responses for the health of communities near and far.
