Health and Climate Week 2020

In partnership with departments and organizations across UM and Missoula, Climate Change Studies will host a series of events exploring the intersection of public health and climate change during National Public Health Week, April 6-10, 2020.  The goal of the program is to actively engage local practitioners, academics and the public in conversation regarding the myriad health impacts of the climate crisis and to empower the community to address them. Each event is designed with principles of active learning, a focus on solutions, equity and local relevance in order to increase accessibility and break down the crisis paralysis that makes action difficult.
