Organized by the Zero Carbon Society in Cambridge
Healthcare needs to adapt to be fit for the future. This conference proposes a vision for a healthcare system based on low energy consumption that will be good for health and good for the tax payer. Healthcare needs to be rethought on many levels, from mode of delivery to management and infrastructure, reconsidering how the health agenda fits into green economics and politics, and how the dissemination of the public health message can bring about a shift away from high consumption lifestyles. Focus will be on policy, debate and action. What does ‘decarbonising healthcare’ mean on an individual, institutional, national, and international level? What lessons can be learnt from other sectors and past public health campaigns? What other resources and involvement from other sectors do we need? What should be the future direction of research?
