World Congress on Public Health Plenary Session – The Earth: A strategy for survival (virtual)

13 October, 2020

We have now entered the Anthropocene era, where for the first time, humans are changing the earth in which we live. Our emissions of carbon dioxide are driving up global temperatures, our exploitation of the environment is destroying biodiversity, our reckless use of chemicals threatens the insects on which we depend to pollinate crops, and our irresponsible use of antibiotics is fueling the rise of antimicrobial resistance. In this session we ask people from different backgrounds how we can work together to tackle what is rapidly becoming a threat to the survival of humans and the creatures with whom we share this planet.

Chaired by Caroline Costongs (EuroHealthNet) and Bettina Borisch (WFPHA).
