04 Oct 2023 - 07 Oct 2023 • Sherbrooke, Canada
ARTION Conferences & Events
Half of the world population does not have access to proper medical care. The recent pandemic has put significant pressure on the delivery of healthcare in virtually all other countries. Furthermore, modern lifestyle exemplified by sedentary lives, urban living and work practices, low physical activity, stress, noise, heat stress, and air pollution is behind the growing prevalence of cardiovascular disease, stress, depression, psychological diseases, and immune disruption among others. This contributes not only to Public Health problems but also to increased health care expenditures.

An accumulating multidisciplinary, global body of evidence has documented the strong potential of natural environments including trees, forests, urban and peri-urban forests, parks, gardens and other green spaces to promote and enhance mental and physical health, and the well-being of populations.

We must continue to study the multidimensional interactions and relationships between forests and green spaces on one side and human health on the other through an interdisciplinary scientific approach. As an integral part of such efforts, the multidisciplinary World Conference on Forests for Public Health is organized biannually to encourage and promote globally, the sharing of knowledge on the latest research trends.

The 3rd World Conference on Forests for Public Health, 4-7 October 2023, in Sherbrooke, Canada, will continue our efforts to find a sustainable direction for the multidisciplinary field of forest, green spaces, and human health. We will emphasize the global message of this Conference: forests, city forests, parks and other green spaces should be incorporated into International Organizations policies and goals, and into National Public Health systems, policies, and practices for a Healthy and Sustainable society.

We warmly thank the organizers of this important conference for their support and guidance.

We have the privilege to invite scientists from all over the world to participate and attend the Conference, to present their research results and share their knowledge in this new multidisciplinary area. Interested citizens and colleagues are also welcome.

BIRS Workshop — The Canadian Network for Modelling Infectious Diseases: Progress and Next Steps
12 Nov 2023 - 17 Nov 2023 • Banff, Alberta, Canada
Banff International Research Station (BIRS) for Mathematical Innovation and Discovery
What have we learned from the COVID-19 pandemic, and how can we be better prepared for the next global outbreak? This workshop brings together collaborative teams of modellers, statisticians, epidemiologists, genomics experts, public health decision-makers, and those implementing and delivering interventions who have been working together in a research network, aiming to increase Canada’s capacity for data-driven emerging infectious disease modelling to directly support future public health decisions. This BIRS meeting is an important opportunity for network members and collaborators to share the outcomes of their research over the two years since the network was launched with funding from the federal government. The questions being tackled at this workshop are grounded in public health needs and generated in partnership between research investigators and knowledge users – public health leaders, health administrators and policy-makers.
