Course Description: This course introduces the core concepts relating to environmental health – that is the links between changing environments and the subsequent impacts to human health and wellbeing, particularly impacts at community-scales. It explores critical drivers causing changes to environments, both anthropogenic and natural in origin, operating at global and local scales. The course also reviews basic ecological processes, exploring how ecosystems change and adapt to pressures. Building on this understanding of changing environments, the course then explores how humans are impacted, focusing on human health and wellbeing. It explores different relationships between human health and wellbeing, and water resources, crops, food and diets, air pollution, and other changes to local natural resources. The course uses case studies to investigate different strategies to mitigate or overcome environmental health impacts, using contemporary approaches such as changing human behaviors and integrating across health, nutrition, natural resources, and water sectors.
