COVID-19 CONSIDERATIONS: The 2nd Global Heat Health Forum, scheduled for July 28-31 in Copenhagen, will be postponed until 2021 due to the COVID-19 global pandemic.
In lieu of the in-person event, virtual dialogues will be held on the original dates and topics, a series of online Masterclasses will be offered by leading experts, and other periodic activities are planned.
We will miss seeing everyone in person, but believe these virtual alternatives create the opportunity for even greater participation from around the world in conversations and learning across the Network.
Those who have already registered or submitted abstracts will be contacted directly with next steps. Registration fees will be refunded in full.

The biennial 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.
During the virtual and live events, 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.
