The global climate crisis: a public health emergency

Friday, 4 October 2019 | 14:00-16.00 | Kursaal A

Scientific research has shown that global heating in the last century has pushed Earth´s temperatures to unprecedented levels. The UN Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change has warned we have just over a decade to limit global warming to a maximum of 1.5 °C, beyond which hundreds of millions of people will be severely affected by extreme heat, drought, flooding and poverty. The global community must make radical changes now in order to avert disaster. The EHFG will highlight climate breakdown as an existential threat and explore the urgent responsibility of stakeholders from industry, civil society, academia and the public sector in tackling this crisis.
