As the intersection of environmental sustainability, health, and community development gains significance, it is imperative to foster collaboration among organizations leading efforts in these domains. Recognizing the shared commitment to fostering resilient communities, this meeting aims to explore synergies between climate change, health, outdoor recreation, and community resilience, fostering a holistic approach to address common challenges through a New Vision of Health.

Join for a day of recognizing opportunities, showcasing excellence and envisioning new partnerships in support of high-impact participatory sciences—variously called citizen science, community science, volunteer monitoring, and other things—in the Kentuckiana region.

Through plenaries, posters, and facilitated discussions participants will work towards developing actionable strategies that address climate change, health, and community resilience in an integrated manner.

Registration fees are being sponsored by the Christina Lee Brown Envirome Institute at the University of Louisville, which is organizing the event. Registration includes seats for the morning plenary session, lunch, seats for facilitated, themed breakout discussions, and light refreshments during an afternoon networking hour. Please register by April 7, 2024 to ensure we have sufficient food. A small surcharge will be added for registrations received after April 1st.Learn more and register here.
