Course Description

The new goal for worldwide Good Health promotes healthy lifestyles, preventive measures and modern, efficient healthcare for everyone. The Seasonal School will introduce participants to the urgent topic of planetary health, exploring the causal relationship between planet health and human health through a multidisciplinary dialogue between medicine, experimental and social sciences. Climate and environmental determinants of human health and sustainable practices to manage them will be explored. Participants will learn how the management of geographic dimension, time scale, socio-cultural and economic context are tools for improving human healthcare in the context of planetary health. The Seasonal School, moreover, will look at how law, inter-legality, and population monitoring of illness events might help physicians predict health implications. The new technologies in preventing and treating the effects of planetary heath disruption on human health will be thoroughly analysed during the Seasonal School. At the end of the Seasonal School, students will develop a comprehensive view of the planetary health to adopt new sustainable medical practices and to support global management of patients generated by the planetary climate and environmental emergency.
