PSR’s Climate Health Summit was held September 20-21, 2015 in Washington, DC.
The Climate Health Summit provided in depth information about the health implications of climate change and the health benefits of climate solutions. Communication skills useful for informing the public and policymakers about this critical issue were presented; and information on policy choices were included with methods to advocate for change to decision-makers who have opportunities to support actions for a healthy climate. Below is a listing of all the presentations, handouts and selected videos.
We hope you find this useful. Please consider joining PSR’s e-activist list and become a member to take action with us on critical healthy climate solutions.
