With the decision we made due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we will hold the 3rd International City, Environment, and Health Congress, which we have prepared and held together with you, in a virtual environment on 16-20 April 2021.
We determined the theme of the 3rd International City, Environment, and Health Congress as “Climate Change and a Healthy Future”. Because the theme is climate, we decided to organize it with a similar congress: The 1st International Health and Climate Change Congress.
Our main goal for both congresses is to evaluate the current and future effects of climate change on our lives with a more realistic approach, based on the experiences gained during the COVID-19 pandemic process. Our expectation from the congress is to be able to make the voices of different disciplines and sectors working in order to be prepared for the effects of climate change, to be informed early, to respond quickly, to be able to fight strongly against the effects of climate change, to be a resilient society, to be able to manage the emerging urgent and/or continuous changes and to be able to continue living in a strong way after it occurs.
The 3rd International City, Environment, and Health Congress will discuss the cities that will be most affected by climate change and the future of the rural areas that will be preferred by the people affected in the cities to breathe. In order to create a healthy future, current issues such as “Health in every policy”, “Single health”, “Multiple hazard/risk management”, “Decision making based on social evidence”, “Blockchain, IT, artificial intelligence and public health” will be discussed within the framework of the city, environment, and health, and under the effect of climate change.
The 1st International Health and Climate Change Congress will be a congress where the solutions to overcome climate change, which brings all global risks with it, with the least damage for a healthy future.
Please mark 16-20 April 2021 on your calendar. You can share all your work with us. The most important experience from the COVID-19 pandemic: live, instantly shared quantitative and qualitative evidence is vital to direct events.
See you in April 2021 for a healthy future.
