Balancing nature and health for the future

About this event

The European Centre for Environment and Human Health (ECEHH) is celebrating 10 years of conducting world-class research.

For a decade the European Centre for Environment and Human Health has worked to put the complex relationships between people and the environment at the top of local, national and international agendas.

As we face the realities of a climate and environmental emergency, there is a growing global recognition that nature and humans depend on one another and the wellbeing of both are finely balanced. But how can we as communities work better together to find solutions to benefit both?

This final session in the Peninsula Forum series will focus on the risks and rewards that the environment can pose to our health and wellbeing and ask what more can be done to maximise the benefits.

Discover how our pioneering research and collaborative approach is identifying solutions to benefit both nature and people and influencing local, national and international policy-change.

Organizer of Balancing nature and health for the future

The ECEHH conducts world-class research into the complex connections between the environment and health.

The Centre was launched in May 2011 with support from the European Regional Development Fund and European Social Fund Convergence programme for Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly.

As part of the University of Exeter Medical School, our research falls into two major areas: emerging threats to health and wellbeing posed by the environment, and the health and wellbeing benefits the natural environment can provide.
