2021 Christ’s College Climate Seminar Series
Achieving change for population and planetary health post pandemic
Three major threats to population and planetary health— infectious diseases, non-communicable disease, and climate and environmental emergencies—are too often treated as distinct problems, but they are intimately entwined. They share many common causes, ranging from unsustainable farming practices to subsidies for fossil fuels. Synergistic actions across these and many other drivers have the potential to promote transformative change, but merely knowing what to do will not solve these problems – it is also essential to identify how to ensure these actions are put in place.
This seminar series will examine ways in which effective action against these threats might be achieved through a focus on framing, public participation, and an appreciation of place.
Seminar 3 - 4 February 2021 (3pm-4:15pm)
Place and policy making: How can local decision making achieve greater change?
The third seminar explored the role of local, place-based decision making – and the benefits it brings in terms of local contextual knowledge and public engagement - alongside decision-making at national and international levels.
