Climate justice and racial justice cannot be separated. Structural inequalities driven by racism manifest themselves in devastating health injustices experienced by minoritised people globally.
Though climate change affects us all, its health impacts are faced by the most vulnerable people in society, who have contributed the least to it. From air pollution, food insecurity and eco-xenophobia to dengue vulnerability and disasters, environmental racism leads to disproportionately poor health for Black, Indigenous and People of Colour.
In this webinar we explore how centring climate justice in racial justice will lead to achieving equity in health for all people.
Join us as we explore solutions to mitigating the health impacts of climate using an intersectional and decolonial lens, centring collective repair and healing.
This webinar is convened by Race and Health, hosted within the UCL Institute of Global Health.
