The 2017 Climate and Health Summit will take place on Saturday the 11th of November, alongside the 23rd UNFCCC Conference of Parties (COP23) in Bonn, Germany.
The summit will focus – from a health perspective – on actions within cities and regions that will advance implementation of national targets under the Paris Agreement, as well as actions that help build momentum towards increasingly ambitious climate commitments.
The 2017 Climate and Health Summit will be an opportunity to promote investment in communities and health systems and to increase the global capacity to respond to climate change by increasing awareness of sustainable development in the context of climate change and health, and strengthening collaboration between health organisations and with other sectors.
This summit is hosted by the Global Climate and Health Alliance (GCHA) in collaboration with the WHO Regional Office for Europe and its European Center for Environment and Health in Bonn, Germany, and with the Health and Environment Alliance (HEAL).
Health Care Without Harm is one of the Summit’s Partner Organisations, alongside:
- Canadian Association of Physicians for the Environment
- International Federation of Medical Students’ Associations
- OraTaiao: New Zealand Climate and Health Council
- U.K. Health Alliance on Climate Change
- U.S. Climate and Health Alliance
With an extensive programme delivered by a variety of speakers from the WHO, and regional and city authorities across the world, this summit will feature dynamic plenary presentations to engage, influence, and encourage commitment to climate action.
