Climate, health and behaviour

Commitment: Climate & biodiversity crisis

Despite growing global awareness of climate change in recent years, the consequences for human health are not yet broadly understood and addressed. The Natural History Museum and Museum for the United Nations - UN Live, are partnering on a project to harness behavioural insights in local, cultural activities that drive meaningful action to tackle climate change and nudge museums to become agents of change.

Our podcast will offer engaging conversations with key voices who bring core perspectives to the project, from a young climate activist to a climate and health scientist. A follow up Q&A offers a chance for questions, reflections and discussion from listeners.

Podcast contributors:

  • Niheer Dasandi (Director of Research, International Development Department, University of Birmingham, climate & health expert)
  • Molly Fannon (CEO Museum for the UN – UN Live)
  • Clare Matterson (Executive Director of Engagement, Natural History Museum, UK)
  • Clemence Quint (Director of Programmes and Founder of Magenta, behavioural science expert)
  • Mitzi Jonelle Tan (Climate justice activist, Lead of YACAP – Youth Advocates for Climate Action Philippines)
