‘Health and Wellbeing on a Changing Planet’ symposium for Imperial College London academic staff and students 

          27th September 2018 | 10:30 – 16:30 | G34, Sir Alexander Fleming Building, South Kensington Campus

 The aim of this symposium will be to generate dialogue and foster interdisciplinary awareness between researchers at Imperial whose work may contribute to our understanding of health and wellbeing on a changing planet.  Understanding the interdependencies between human  health and the state of the planet on which we depend is by nature a highly interdisciplinary field bringing together Public Health, Life Sciences, Earth Sciences, Engineering, Mathematics and many more. 

The day will include a panel session featuring Imperial College researchers from a range of disciplines whose work concerns health and wellbeing on a changing planet.  The day will also include a Q&A session and an interactive workshop to further explore the realities of conducting environmental change and health research.

For more details, and to register your attendance, please follow the Eventbrite link below.
