Event description
To develop an understanding of the key public health concerns raised by climate change with a focus on action for Cork City

About this Event

In an era of large scale migration, escalating urbanisation, growing diversity in populations, demographic change and aging populations, global warming, poverty and growing inequality, traditional responses are no longer adequate. The health risks that come with global warming are unevenly distributed and are generally greater for disadvantaged people and communities.

Recognising that working in silos has limited capacity and impact, Healthy Cities foster health and well-being through governance, empowerment and participation, creating urban places for equity and community prosperity, and investing in people for a peaceful planet.

‘Cork a Healthy City in a Changing Climate?’ will focus on presentations on the science of climate change actions possible at city level to develop a local action plan for Cork City. This plan will be incorporated into the Cork Healthy Cities Action Plan and the Cork City Council Climate Adaptation Implementation Plan.

This is a collaboration between Cork Healthy Cities, the Environmental Research Institute UCC, the Environmental Protection Agency, SHEP Earth Aware and EcCoWeLL Cork.
