Climate and health: Understanding the impact on Europe’s most marginalised communities

Moving from mitigation to inclusive adaptation and resilience

Thursday, 28 September 2023 | 16:00-18:00 | Conference Centre

Organised by Nobody Left Outside

In a pivotal moment in the EU election cycle, this insightful session will delve into the critical relationship between climate and health. Specifically exploring this intersectionality through the prism of marginalised groups by hearing real-life experiences from members of the communities, the session will shed light on the profound impact of the climate crisis on these under-represented communities. Recognising that marginalised communities are disproportionately affected by the adverse consequences of climate change amongst other crises, the session aims to propose concrete solutions and innovative approaches to ensure a more equitable future for all.

By examining current policy frameworks on climate adaptation and health and other ongoing efforts, the session seeks to inform future political priorities and policy developments at the EU level. It is crucial to consider the disproportionate impact of the climate crisis on the health of marginalised communities when conceptualising and implementing future solutions for building more resilient and shock-proof societies. Panel speakers will present and reflect on strategies, including policy recommendations, community-based initiatives, and interventions that foster resilience, adaptation, and mitigation.

Join us for this workshop to support the cause that the health of marginalised communities be prioritised as part of long-term climate action plans. By prioritising these communities and their unique challenges, we can forge a path towards a more prosperous and inclusive future.
