Declaración Complutense Sobre Cambio Climático y Salud

Complutense Declaration on Climate Change and Health

On December 2019, it took place in Madrid (Spain) the UN Climate Change Conference -COP 25-. In parallel, the World Health Organization (WHO) and the Global Climate and Health Alliance (GCHA), in a combined effort with the Complutense University (UCM), organized a one-day Summit on Climate and Health. The Summit was held at the Faculty of Medicine and was a resounding success, having a major impact on medical students, public and media.

On the occasion of the event, it was agreed a declaration of principles, with a primary focus on the role of Universities, in particular when preparing future healthcare professionals.

 

We call on Universities around the world to join us in to address the climate emergency and its consequences on human health.
