Second BSA Conference on Society, Environment and Human Health

An event by the BSA Environment & Health and Climate Change Study Groups

27 October 2017 (10am–4.30pm)
Cardiff University, Cardiff, UK

Keynote speaker: Dr Ben Wheeler (University of Exeter) – ‘Natural Environments, Health and Inequalities: Evidence and Policy

We invite you to this day conference, which will explore current social research and theoretical perspectives upon the environment and health.

There are intricate interactions between the natural environment and human health and wellbeing.  This wide-ranging research area thus presents an important agenda for social analysis across the multi-disciplinary areas of environment and human health, and for public policy and activity.

Building on our successful conference in 2016, the second BSA conference on Society, Environment and Human Health will explore current social research and theory on this topic.  Papers include discussion of:

  • Social theories of environment and human health and/or wellbeing.
  • Climate change and human health.
  • Human rights, environment and health.
  • Experiences of environmental interactions with wellbeing.

Submissions for this event are now closed; a detailed event programme will be available shortly on the BSA web site.
