The Centre for Science and Environment (CSE) has announced a Global Online Training Program on how to use data for communicating the health crisis.

Participants will learn the linkages between seemingly distinct but related concepts of health, environment and the SDGs. By the end of the course, participants will be able to analyze the data on these concepts and prepare impactful stories, dashboards and communication collaterals for different stakeholders to trigger action, the CSE said.

The 15-hour course will be conducted from 31 January to 14 February 2023 on Zoom and Moodle.

The advocacy group said climate change, air pollution and antimicrobial resistance will be amongst top threats to public health and the SDGs too. But the action to address risks to human health due to deteriorating environment is not happening at the scale and urgency needed.

This is clearly seen in the data that is emerging every year. If identified, understood and visualized well, data can become an effective basis for actions to address the link between health and environment. Data is not just numbers. It is critical for research communication, advocacy and decision-making.

Who can attend?

  • Professionals, government officials and policymakers working on health and environment.
  • Academia: Faculty and researchers, and students associated with health and sustainable development.
  • Researchers and writers on health and development.
  • National and international civil society groups, NGOs, health activists and advocates.
  • Industries: Environmental, social and governance (ESG)/ CSR officers, public relations/ communication officers.
  • Data managers and statisticians interested in improving communication skills.
  • Anyone else interested in the subject

All those who attend and complete the course will be assessed by the course coordination team. CSE and AAETI will award e-certificates to all those who attend and complete the course.
