About the
Webinar Series

This online webinar series aims to inform all stakeholders of the climate crisis, especially public health and medical professionals, climate and energy professionals, government, academia, and youth and to catalyze action. 

Why You Should Attend the Webinar Series

As the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC), The Paris Agreement and Action for Climate Empowerment demonstrates, education is a critical agent in addressing the issue of climate change. Studies have shown that more education about climate change and public health can help empower individuals and institutions to change their behaviors in ways that can profoundly shape the way we interact with our collective home.  

In the face of climate crisis already happening and being the biggest single threat to public health, the importance of improving preparedness and resiliency of health and medical professionals is growing.  The webinar series aims to address this gap of knowledge through considering individual interventions, as well as higher-level interventions that can be made at the organizational or policy-level for larger impact.
