Environmental Health

Tuesday May 28th, 12:00 - 1:00 pm @ St. Louis MHB

As understanding of the impact of climate change on human health continues to evolve, philanthropy has a significant opportunity to offer support in this space to help lessen the impacts. It is well documented that rising temperatures, more extreme weather, rising sea levels, and increasing CO2 levels adversely impact human health. The Lancet Commission on Climate and Health recently noted that climate change is this generations’ greatest public health opportunity and it poses a major threat to the public health gains made over the past fifty years. Climate change has disproportionate impacts on communities of color and low-income communities across the world which has propelled many conversations around environmental justice. 

This month we are joined by Doneisha Bohannon, Program Officer at Missouri Foundation for Health, who will offer insights from a recent “The Funders Network” conference and conversations with the “Health & Environmental Funders Network.” We will explore options for improving heath and equity while addressing climate change and talk about how local funders see themselves being part of this work. Climate change is happening and there is a real opportunity for philanthropy to get involved to catalyze efforts in this space.
