KI conference on sustainable development goals, 17 November, 2020 – part 4
From Johanna Bylund
The final session Health effects of climate change was moderated by Tobias Alfvén (KI). A further three KI researchers presented their research, with the complexity of multidisciplinary, interdisciplinary, transdisciplinary aspects of climate effects on infectious disease (Elisabeth Lindgren); being followed by Erik Melén who gained our immediate attention when discussing the consequences of toxic air inhalation by 90% of children; while Johan von Schreeb informed how global climate change is linked to natural disasters and advised us how we should be working to prevent them.
The programme was concluded by a summary by Nina Rawal/Susanne Gabrielsson that marked the end of an extremely informative and inspiring day.
