CIH Symposium on Global Health Perspectives:

Climate Change and Migration
Date
12 Mar 2021

The CIHLMU Symposium on Global Health Perspectives: Climate Change and Migration will be held on Friday, March 12, 2021

Medical education credit points (CME) will be applied for at the Bavarian Medical Chamber

The effects of climate change cannot be emphasized enough. Climate change is not only affecting global health issues but also has an impact worldwide on economies. Therefore, changes to our environment are likely to become increasingly important causal factors of migration globally in years ahead. One of the key challenges will be to improve understanding of how environmental migration relates to vulnerability of people, as every person on the planet is a potential stakeholder in the essentials of interactions between the climate, environment and the health of human beings.

The aim with this symposium is to highlight knowledge to reduce vulnerabilities and enhance the resilience of communities and ecosystems affected by climate change. By creating awareness about the severity of consequences from climate change, we would like to address these issues especially related to global health and migration. This augments the scientific understanding of climate change and attendees will be equipped with relevant mitigating strategies to help populations adapt to these associated vulnerabilities.

This symposium will be held online via Zoom, with presentations by respected and prominent speakers followed by a panel discussion.
