Protect cities and workers from extreme heat in a rapidly warming world.

28-31 July 2020 / Copenhagen, Denmark

Join us for the 2nd Global Forum on Heat and Health to share your experiences and learn from interdisciplinary experts and practitioners from around the world.

The biannual Heat Health Forum is an international multi-stakeholder platform that helps build community and accelerate the transformation of knowledge to action that can help society better adapt to a warmer world.

In Copenhagen, our global network will focus on uncovering issues and shaping high-impact opportunities to protect workers and cities from the health impacts of extreme heat.

The Forum will review progress on the priorities established in Hong Kong at the First Global Forum on Heat and Health in 2018, raise awareness of the urgent need to protect populations from extreme heat in a warming world, and set out ambitious new targets to protect workers and cities from extreme heat exposure.
