Environment x women's health Workshop: london SEPTEMBER 4th 2020

COVID-19 update 16/03/20: Following escalating COVID-19 concerns we have decided to postpone this workshop until early September.  We are monitoring both Public Health England and LSE guidance and it has become clear that postponing the workshop is the right course of action. The workshop has been postponed until September 4th 2020. The submission deadline has been extended to Midnight 15th July 2020. Any updates will be posted here.

We are now accepting submissions for presentations at the 1st Environment x Women’s Health Workshop in London. This is a 1-day multidisciplinary, multi-sector workshop and submissions are invited from anyone with an interest in environmental effects on women’s health.  Key note speakers include Dr Katie Dow , Professor Tahseen Jafry and Dr Rochelle Burgess.

Date: Friday 4th September 2020, London School of Economics, London, UK.

How to participate: 

This event is free of charge but spaces are limited. Those wishing to participate please follow this link to make a submission.

We welcome submissions from those with expertise in maternal and reproductive health, mental health, indigenous health, environmental and social epidemiology, political ecology, environmental anthropology and environmental sciences, amongst others, as well as from those working in the public and third sector whose work intersects with the environment-gender-health nexus. Whilst primarily focused on women in the Global South, we welcome participants with different regional focuses, as there are still lessons to be learnt from the Global North. We also encourage submissions from students, early career researchers and other underrepresented groups.


Given the multidisciplinary and multi-sector nature of the workshop, we are happy to accept both academic and non-academic contributions. Submissions will therefore be accepted in a variety of formats, including, but not limited to, traditional research paper style for completed studies or work-in-progress, case-studies and project summaries. Please write your submission in English and in a maximum of 300 words.  Ensure you include the names of all contributing authors and corresponding affiliations. Please describe your project clearly, detailing the context, your approach, and if relevant, methods, exposures and outcomes considered and any key findings. If your submission is accepted, you may be asked to join a panel discussion or give a short presentation, depending on speaker preferences and the number and topics or submissions received.


Submission deadline: 

***Midnight 15th July 2020***.  Submissions will be reviewed by the organising committee and will be primarily assessed based on relevance to the workshop interests.  Successful contributors will be notified by the end of July.


Attendance information:

There will be a mix of presentations and group discussion. Lunch and refreshments will be provided and there will be a networking drinks reception in the evening. Attendance will be prioritised for contributors as spaces are limited to 30 participants. Participants may appear as co-author on more than one submission, but may present only once. Any spare tickets for non-presenters will be released when the programme is finalised. Participants may participate remotely through a dedicated online platform instead of attending in person if preferred (please note this preference when you make your submission).
