Stefi Barna, lecturer in Global Public Health at the Norwich Medical School, and co-Director of the Sustainable Healthcare Education Network will introduce us to the connection between sustainability and health, and the key issues to be addressed.

“Good Health and Well-being” is one of the Sustainable Development Goals, a United Nations initiative of 17 global goals and 169 specific targets, which form the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development. Why is this an issue for sustainability? Life expectancy can be determined by many factors, but reducing death and illness from pollution is an important target, alongside improvements in sanitation and access to clean water worldwide.

Open to all and free to attend, a healthy lunch will be provided
