3er Seminar on biomechanics health and sustainable environment

3er Seminar on biomechanics health and sustainable environment: Health co-benefits of climate change mitigation. The adaptaclima II project

 

Come to UTAD and participate to this useful forum for exchanging knowledge and experience around biomechanics, components of well‐being and channels of human interaction with nature. Graduate and postgraduate students from a variety of backgrounds will be given the opportunity to present and discuss their work carried out in an open scientific environment.

Cartel 3 seminario on biomechanics healthIn this 3rd edition, our special attention will be to the health co-benefits of climate change mitigation. Mitigation and adaptation of climate change has generated several policy documents with lifestyle recommendations that most of them are socially uncomfortable and economically painful. However, there is current evidence and potential co-benefits of alternative practices, and environmental strategies that minimize the effects of climate change and improve health and well-being.

In this context, the European Project “Adaptación al Cambio Climático en el Sudoe” (SOE3/P2/E477), known as ADAPTACLIMA II, started on November 8th 2012 in Miengo (Cantabria, Spain), aims to develop actions in the INTERREG SUDOE region by capitalizing on the findings and recommendations of previous projects and studies and disseminating them to the general public and the private sector. Information and awareness resulting from ADAPTACLIMA II will be used to build a tool to help define European economic policy.
We would be pleased to welcome you as a presenter or participant.

Objetives

As part of the CITAB (Centre for the Research and Technology of Agro-Environmental and Biological Sciences) activities, the Biomechanics Seminar, Health and Sustainable Environment will support the presentation of several studies developed by undergraduate and postgraduate students. It is intended to give visibility to the results obtained in the academic context and provide an opportunity for interaction with other professional contexts. The event aims to be a forum for discussion on the state of the art of the relationship between biomechanics, components of well‐being and channels of human interaction with nature.
