The Future of Environmental Protection

Gina McCarthy, Professor of the Practice of Public Health in the Department of Environmental Health at Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health and Director of the Center for Climate, Health, and the Global Environment, Harvard University, will speak as part of the 2019 Directors Lecture Series at the Arnold Arboretum.

International cooperation on mitigating climate change has lost momentum since the US withdrew from the 2015 Paris Agreement last year. What does this mean for the health of the planet and the life it supports? Gina McCarthy has dedicated her 35-year career in public service to environmental protection and public health. In this talk, McCarthy will discuss current efforts at the federal level to rollback core public health protections and actions taken to counter climate change. She will also address recent attacks on the field of science. Then, looking forward, she will lead a discussion on future challenges in public health and the health of our planet.
