The event

Climate change is and will increasingly be an issue of central importance to the health and wellbeing of local communities. Strategies to adapt to climate change are therefore an integral component of local planning and decision making, bringing multiple benefits to the physical and mental health of the population. Taking action on adaptation will improve the resilience of our services and the communities they serve, lessen the burden of illness and disease, and reduce health inequalities.

Confirmed speakers include Prof. John Thornes from Public Health England, Prof. Rod Thompson from DPH Shropshire and Cllr Cecilia Motley, Chair of the national Rural Services Network.
