The Health and Security Perspectives of Climate Change - How to secure our future wellbeing
“The Health and Security Perspectives of Climate Change - How to secure our future wellbeing” conference was held on 17th October 2011 in the British Medical Association's (BMA’s) headquarters.
Billed as a high level briefing, the event was intended to remind participants that climate change must go to the top of our list. Over 300 delegates from healthcare, the military, climate science, industry, business, and politics, heard frightening news that none of us want to hear, made more frightening by the measured way it was delivered.
The meeting concluded that we must give politicians the ammunition they need if we are to create radically different ways of living, and we must develop better narratives to articulate the health and economic benefits of tackling climate change. A BMJ editorial takes up the challenge. To read and sign the statement click here.
