How are changes in the environment affecting health? Why is nature important? How would understanding nature help you in your work on public health—to help understand emerging health risks or investments that would improve public health? Join the US Global Change Research Program (USGCRP) on March 8, 2023, from 3:00 PM – 5:00 pm ET for a National Nature Assessment collaboration session for audiences who care about public health.
The National Nature Assessment will provide a comprehensive assessment of the status of nature today— a snapshot of how America’s lands, waters, wildlife, and ecosystems are doing and the benefits they provide, including connections to public health.
The National Nature Assessment is in the early stages of development and is anticipated to be released in 2026. It will draw on expertise from the Federal Government, Indigenous communities, academia, non-profit organizations, and the private sector. They are holding this collaboration opportunity to ensure the assessment answers questions that are important, including:
- What does nature mean to you?
- What questions do you have about connections between nature and health?
- How would you use the findings of the National Nature Assessment? What kinds of products would be useful?
- How should the Assessment team engage the public health community, and people who care about public health, as the National Nature Assessment is developed?
Join the National Nature Assessment Listening Session March 8, 2023 from 3:00 PM -4:30 PM ET. Registration in advance is optional but encouraged.
