Morning 13: Healthy Communities (Part of Alpbach Learning Missions)
Healthy communities, municipalities or cities are places or social contexts that aim to maximise health and well-being. Environmental and social factors create and solve health problems for communities. The climate crisis, for example, introduces new or additional challenges and requirements such as the provision of safe drinking water, clean air, healthy food, secure shelter, and preparatory action against extreme heat, weather-related natural disasters or new patterns of infection. This seminar and learning mission will focus on how empowered communities can tackle climate challenges to secure subsistence and ensure health.
This seminar will continue as an Alpbach Learning Mission to take a deep-dive into concrete and pressing questions surrounding global health.
