Postgraduate Centre, Second Gait

Join Tan Sri Dr Jemillah Mahmood at 5.30pm on the Edinburgh campus for a reception followed by the Lecture at 6.00pm to 8.00pm. There are a limited number of seats, so get your ticket today. The event is entirely free.


Planetary Health offers us a lens of looking at all the complex contributions of environment, politics, social and health on people’s lives. Unless we address Planetary Health and make this a priority, we will always be trying to catch up with more crises, more pandemics, more disasters, and more suffering for everyone. Education plays such an important role in our shared understanding. We all deserve an environment and a planet that is healthier than what it is now.


The Lecture will be recorded and made available online after the event.
