How will climate change affect our health?

1:00pm-2:00pm on Friday 2 April

Times shown are in GMT (UTC +0) up to the 27th March. For events on or after 28th March times are in BST (UTC +1).

Climate change will have an impact on everything from where we live to what we eat and there will be profound implications for our health and wellbeing in its broadest sense, with global inequalities exacerbating the effects.

Gates Cambridge is the University of Cambridge's leading scholarship programme for international postgraduate researchers who are at the cutting edge of research and this year celebrates its 20th anniversary. It attracts not only academically outstanding researchers, but also places an emphasis on social impact.

In this panel discussion Kim van Daalen will talk about her research on and advocacy for climate change and health, including her contribution to The Lancet Countdown on health and climate change; environmental design consultant and lecturer Dr Nkatha Gichuyia will speak about how architecture/building design can lessen the health impact of global warming; Ramit Debnath will talk about his research on housing and energy conservation in India, Brazil and Nigeria; and journalist and researcher Reetika Subramanian will talk about her research on climate migration in India and the knock-on effect on girls' health. Chaired by Gates Cambridge Trustee Professor Bhaskar Vira.
