Event description
1 Hotels x NRDC Presents "The Fight for Our Future" Series

About this Event

As we battle the greatest environmental threat of our time, the Natural Resources Defense Council (NRDC) and 1 Hotels have launched an intimate event series to shed light on the various aspects of the climate crisis, what it means for us and our planet, and how together, we make a big impact. Join leading NRDC experts for monthly interactive discussions leading up to the 50th anniversary of Earth Day in April to learn more about NRDC’s frontline work to safeguard the planet, and how you can be part of the solution. Light refreshments and snacks will be served.

On Tuesday, January 28 we launch the series with:

"The Hidden Health Costs of Climate Change" feat. NRDC experts Dr Kim Knowlton and Dr Vijay Limaye.

We’re used to hearing about the effects of climate change on our environment and natural systems: how it’s raising sea levels, intensifying hurricane storm surges, worsening droughts, and prolonging wildfire seasons. Not everyone realizes that the events fueled by climate change are causing costly health problems, so NRDC connects the dots and encourages governments to take action. A new study by NRDC and the University of California, San Francisco, shows that climate change is taking a huge toll on Americans’ health, so much so that it could constitute a public health crisis. NRDC’s analysis paints a clear picture of what these expensive climate change–driven health impacts are and what’s needed to ensure we don’t pay for climate change in the form of illness, injuries and lost lives.
