Global Health Seminar and arising risks. Impact of climate and anthropic changes

Global Health Seminar
The objective of this seminar is to treat the health challenges associated with arising risks generated by climate and anthropic changes by decompartmentalizing disciplinary approaches. Experts will speak on climate, the consequences of global changes and the urgency of finding ways to act.

Our own health depends on the health of others. Who are the ones, who are the others, what interactions and consequences bind them together? The food chain, which positions living species in relation to each other, is superimposed with a health change that poses new risks associated with global changes due to environmental and anthropogenic pressures.

Living organisms undergo many risks and pressures to which they must face depending on their adaptative capacities and vulnerabilities. The recent health crises, for example the world expansion of avian flu since 2003, prion diseases, coronavirus epidemies (SRAS, MERS-CoV-19) and Chikungunia, but also increased rates of cancer, obesity and infertility have shown the need for interdisciplinary coordination. How do we identify ways to fight and prevent, without adopting a man-animal-plant-ecosystem integrative approach? The challenges are directly linked to those of the sustainability of agri-food systems that, within an agro-ecological context of changes, should nourish the planet by producing healthy foods for the consumer and with a limited environmental impact.

The objective of this seminar is to treat the health challenges associated with the risks generated by climate and anthropic changes through interdisciplinary approaches.

Experts will speak on the climate, the consequences of global changes and the urgency of identifying different ways to act. They will be accompanied by other speakers who will illustrate a few scientific fronts on the following subjects:

  1. Impact on health (exposome, interactons between risks, emerging diseases, chronic exposure and non transmissible diseases);
  2. Host adaptation strategies and agressors and characterization of response;
  3. Governing capacities, steering and control of global health by society.
