2nd Planetary Health Annual Meeting in Edinburgh

Since learning about the 2nd Planetary Health Annual Meeting in Edinburgh late last year, I realise I didn't post the news, which is a gift in terms of the purposes of Hodges' model. So, this post celebrates what is a vital subject and call for action and an invite to present a poster. Unfortunately regards the poster, in my haste I did not check the registration terms and the applicable early bird fee of £250 is too much for me personally. If you are a student, or resident citizen of a low and middle income countries opportunity knocks with a welcome reduced early bird registration fee until 9 March.

The planet and planetary health have featured here on W2tQ, on the now defunct website 1998-2015 and in papers, notably:

Another short paper is under review on Hodges' model and the Sustainable Development Goals.

Amid the embarrassment of having to turn the offer down I will follow developments with keen interest and hope that another opportunity may arise.
