InVIVO Planetary Health Meeting 2020

How does a low-carbon trip to Amsterdam to get involved with all things Planetary Health sound?

The 9th annual InVIVO Planetary Health Meeting will take place in Amsterdam from 18-20 June 2020. Pre-conference workshops will run from the 17th, and the Meeting is followed by a Public Planetary Health Festival from 19-21 June.

As the coordinating institution for Planetary Health Northern Europe, Royal Holloway is organising a group of students to attend the conference. Places are limited, so get in touch with us via email ASAP if you’d like to go!

RHUL students will have their travel, accommodation, and conference fees covered by travel grants (requires application). We’re aiming for this to be as environmentally low-impact as possible, so we’ll travel out by either train or minibus and will be staying at a campsite close to Amsterdam’s city centre.

We will be coordinating with students from other universities around the UK as well, so don’t worry if you’re not an RHUL student – get in touch anyway.

If you’re interested in sustainability, climate change, and the global impact humans are having this is an event you don’t want to miss!

Event: Social Science for Planetary Health

Interested in this event but can’t attend in person? Watch the livestream here. The session will begin at 15.00 GMT, Friday 24 January 2020.

To launch the Planetary Health Alliance’s new Regional Hubs there will be a panel discussion on Friday 24th January 2020, hosted by Royal Holloway. The theme is Social Action for Planetary Health, and the panel will discuss the importance of social science in addressing the challenges we face from environmental change and what will be required to enact the societal transformation needed to safeguard Earth through the 21st century.

Panellists include leading academics and student activists from several universities, and the Chair is Dr Jennifer Cole, the Coordinator for the North European Hub. Come along to the Shilling Auditorium at Royal Holloway’s Egham campus to be part of the discussion.
