I am delighted to invite you to join us and hear from one of GCU's 
flagship research centres, the Centre for Climate Justice on 
Thursday, April 4th, 6pm.
During the World Economic Forum held in January 2019 in Davos, Sir 
David Attenborough underscored the threats posed by anthropogenic 
climate change to both humankind and the planet, and cautioned world 
leaders that "if we damage the natural world, we damage ourselves."
Indeed, the current and future impacts of climate change on people's 
health and wellbeing are of growing concern for local communities and 
decision-makers around the globe, especially in urban areas where the 
majority of the world's population now resides. According to the 
World Health Organization (WHO), air pollution and climate change are 
among the top ten threats to global health in 2019, and between 2030 
and 2050, climate change will claim around 250,000 lives every year 
due to malnutrition, heat stress, and other climate-related causes. 
These health risks, particularly pressing for the poor and 
marginalized, should be considered an issue of climate injustice.

With this in mind, the Centre for Climate Justice at Glasgow 
Caledonian University is organizing a Townhall to foster an exchange 
of ideas and to advance collaboration to combat the negative health 
impacts of climate change in the world's cities. The event will 
provide an opportunity to discuss this serious challenge in 
anticipation of the inaugural World Forum on Climate Justice to be 
hosted by the Centre for Climate Justice in June 2019 in Glasgow, Scotland.


I do hope you can join us as we celebrate Tartan Week and you can
