3. Organisations required for the Group’s student experience programme
The Group is looking for organisations that would be willing to support a student for its ‘2-day work experience’ programme. The programme is now in its third year, and previously has been undertaken with various organisations including SRCL, Bywaters and Grundon, with positive feedback both from the students and the organisations. It offers the opportunity to facilitate the entry of students/future employees into the sector. The expenses for the students’ travel, accommodation and subsistence will be paid by the Group, using monies generated from its seminars. If you are interested, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
4. Climate change in the UK: What will be the impact on health, mortality and frontline NHS services?
A joint event hosted by the All-Party Parliamentary Health Group, the All-Party Parliamentary Group on Climate Change, the Lancet Countdown on Health and Climate Change, and the UK Health Alliance on Climate Change.
“Climate change isn’t just hurting the planet – it’s a public health emergency.” That’s the conclusion of Christiana Figueres, Chair of the Lancet Countdown, who published a report on 31 October 2017 which has shone a light on the damaging impacts that climate change is having on our health. In order to discuss this public health crisis in further detail – and to explore what we can do about it – we have teamed up with the Lancet Countdown, the UK Health Alliance on Climate Change and the APPG on Health, in order to host a panel discussion on the impact of climate change and health.
