In an effort to educate and raise debate within the health and environment community on approaches to and synergies between climate protection and health promotion, the Health and Environment Alliance (HEAL) has launched a dedicated list serve on “Climate Change and Health” with the following objectives:
Help keep you up-to-date on climate change and health related issues - in particular regarding policy developments, new studies and reports, key articles, the status of files in the EU decision-making process including key dates for action, consultation etc.;
Propose opportunities for action at national or EU level in the field of climate change and health;
Provide a forum for information exchange;
Notify participants of meetings and events associated with climate change and health;
Identify opportunities for joint press releases and media promotion;
Mobilise the health care sector to advocate for climate change mitigation and adaptation policies that protect health and promote energy saving and energy efficiency.
Our free, dedicated list serve aims to create an easy-to-use, dynamic forum for discussion, where subscribers not only receive important e-mail messages related to climate change and health, but can also connect with other users on the list by sending a single email.
If you would like to join please send an email to the HEAL Secretariat including your name, organisation and email address.
We do not sell or share our list with other organizations.
