What’s at stake?
Climate change is impacting people, ecosystems and communities across BC, the health and stability on which we rely for clean air, water, food, safety and security, and which are essential for good health and wellbeing. Without attention to the health impacts of climate change we risk rolling back much of the progress that has been made for healthy communities in the last few decades.
What’s the opportunity?
Decisions made today about how we respond to climate change will have lasting consequences for the health and prosperity of all populations and communities in BC. Many regions around the world are already taking bold action that not only plans for and minimizes the health risks of climate change, but also maximizes the opportunity to increase health and wellbeing by seeking win-win solutions. How can we work together to harness best thinking and practice to do the same?
