Think Globally, Act Locally
Public Health and the Anthropocene
Thursday July 9th & Friday July 10th, 2020
The Public Health Association of BC is proud to release the Save the Date for our 11th annual public health summer school, “Think Globally, Act Locally: Public Health and the Anthropocene,” happening Thursday July 9th and Friday July 10th, 2020. Once again, we have partnered with Saskatchewan Public Health Association, Public Health Agency of Canada, Yukon Public Health Community of Practice, and Manitoba Public Health Association to host this event across Canada.
As a result of the ongoing pandemic we will be hosting our summer school entirely online, so no matter where you are in the country you can join us virtually. Information about registration will be released soon.
We are excited to have Dr. Trevor Hancock and Dr. Maya Gislason as our scientific program co-chairs for this year’s school. We are working had to develop an engaging two day experience to orient public health professionals and anyone who is interested in public health to what it means to be living in the Anthropocene era and how you can harness global initiatives to affect positive local change in the fight against climate change, pollution, and other major ecological and sociological concerns.
We will be releasing more information on the summer school; it’s agenda, featured speakers, registration, etc., in the coming weeks. To keep up to date on everything summer school related, please keep checking back on our website under the summer school tab. If you have any questions or are interested in any volunteer opportunities please contact Christina Harding, summer school coordinator, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Registration will open soon!
