News from ISGlobal
The Barcelona Institute for Global Health (ISGlobal) is participating in the COP25, also known as the Climate Summit, which is being held in Madrid from December 2 to 13. In addition to participating in several events of the programme, ISGlobal is organising a session in the parallel programme, the round table entitled Planetary Health: A Balance between the Welfare of the Planet and that of Human Beings .
This debate, selected among more than 1,500 proposals presented for the parallel programme, will take place on December 11 at 15h30 in the COP25’s Green Zone, and can be followed by streaming. The event will address the concept of Planetary Health, which proposes that the health of the planet and that of its inhabitants are linked to such an extent that it makes no sense to address the latter without considering the former. The conversation will be moderated by Gonzalo Fanjul, Policy director at ISGlobal, and will feature Josep M. Antó, scientific director at ISGlobal, Lela Mélon, Marie Curie Fellow at Pompeu Fabra University (UPF), Cristina Narbona, member of the Spanish Network for Sustainable Development (REDS) and María José Sanz, director of the Basque Centre for Climate Change (BC3).
