International Breakfast Seminar with Dr Jennifer Miller
On 25 January 2017 we welcomed Dr Jennifer Miller, chief executive of the Global Climate and Health Alliance, to speak about using holistic community revitalisation to make urban areas healthier for people and planet.
She offered excellent examples of work being done in the United States in low-income neighbourhoods that prove to have useful learnings for professionals in the UK and elsewhere.
- East Lake, Atlanta, Georgia: known as ‘Little Vietnam’ for its similarities to a war zone

- Little Village, Chicago, Illinois: primarily Mexican community heavily polluted by nearby coal power stations
