The Global Environmental Health and Sustainable Development Innovation Collaborative will host a three-part webinar series during the spring of 2013, under the coordination of the IOM Roundtable on Environmental Health Sciences, Research, and Medicine. The aim of the webinar series is to engage members of academia, government organizations, professional societies, and students at schools of public health in dialogue around health, economic development, equity, sustainability, and environmental challenges and to stimulate fresh thinking on possible solutions. The webinars will take place from 2:30 – 4:00 PM EDT on May 23, June 27, and July 25, 2013.

The first webinar in the three-part series will be held on Thursday, May 23. It will focus on the role of health in the context of novel sustainable economic frameworks that go beyond gross domestic product (GDP). 

During this webinar, the presenters and participants will:

  • Provide an overview of current work underway focusing on the “beyond GDP” initiative.
  • Discuss novel economic frameworks that include health capital in the assessment, including both measures of mental and physical well being as well as human health impact of exposures and risks.
  • Identify opportunities for further engagement with the various “beyond GDP” efforts underway.

The webinar series is organized with support from the National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences and the Pan American Health Organization.
