Description

Climate change is one of the most pressing societal concerns of our time.

Climate change impacts multiple areas: from policy making to public health.

As the main engines of biogeochemical cycling, microorganisms are at the center of processes affecting our climate.

In this 2-day activity, research experts will discuss multiple aspects liking climate change and microbiology. This includes:

- The shift and modification of the distribution range of vectors involved in the transmission of microbial diseases,

- The health of in-land aquatic systems and the challenges we will face for clean water supplies,

- The future of permafrost and the environmental/health consequences of soil thawing.
