“Climate change isn’t just an environmental emergency... it’s also a health emergency.”
-- 2022 Tyler Prize Laureate, Sir Andy Haines

In 2022, the Tyler Prize for Environmental Achievement – often regarded as the ‘Nobel Prize for the Environment’ – was awarded to British physician, Sir Andy Haines. Haines was one of the first scientists to sound the alarm that changes to the natural environment have dangerous implications for human health.

In this special virtual event, we shine a light on the work of one of the leading experts in the new field of Planetary Health. Sir Andy will deliver his Laureate Lecture ‘The Climate Crisis - from Impacts to Action for Health’, followed by a discussion with Tyler Prize Executive Committee Members.

The event will include a public Q&A, with viewers encouraged to ask questions in the YouTube chat function.

Tune in to learn about:

--Planetary Boundaries for Healthfully Supporting Life on Earth

--Planetary Health and Under-nutrition

--Mental Health Effects of Climate Change

--Climate Action for Health

--Nature Based Solutions
