ANNOUNCING

HSE-EPA ENVIRONMENT & HEALTH CONFERENCE 2017: CITIZEN SCIENCE – OPPORTUNITIES TO ENGUAGE CITIZENS & COMMUNITIES IN ENVIRONMENT, HEALTH & WELLBEING PROGRAMMES

*** HOLD THIS DATE ***

Date 29 November 2017, Radisson Blu Golden Lane, Dublin

Dr Stephanie O’Keeffe National Director of Health & Wellbeing at HSE, and Laura Burke Director General of the EPA, invite you to attend the 2017 Health & Environment Conference which will be held on the 29th November 2017 in the Radisson Blu Golden Lane, Dublin. The theme of this year’s event is ‘Citizen Science – opportunities to engage citizens & communities in environment, health & wellbeing programmes’ and it aims to share and discuss practice and innovation in this space with particular experiences drawn from national practice, case studies and research.

John F Ryan, Director, at the European Commission Health and Food Safety Directorate General Directorate C – Public Health and Crisis Management will give a keynote address on European priorities in the environment and health nexus. We will also hear from Dr Simon O’Rafferty on a product design led approach to successful public engagement, and Dr Easkey Britton who is a researcher at the NUIG Whitaker Inst. Working on Social Innovation, Participation and Policy. The conference will also include a series of presentations from practice based experience in engaging with citizen led science and communities followed by a panel and audience led discussion on addressing benefits, challenges and needs for such engagement.

This Conference is a free event aimed at HSE and EPA staff working in the Health, Wellbeing and citizen engagement area, as well as for NGOs and Academics. Successfully engaging citizens and communities is enormously challenging, yet without such engagement, the essential transition to sustainable and healthy living is impossible.

This year’s conference follows on from a successful event in 2016, the presentations from which are available to view and download at: http://www.epa-pictaural.com/nav/sHse16.php
