"Climate change has adversely affected everyone's health. Animal and human diseases are emerging in new areas. Transformation in all sectors is needed and enables the adaption required for high levels of human health and wellbeing, economic and social resilience as well as ecosystem and planetary health. There is the consent, that the value of diverse forms of knowledge such as scientific, as well as indigenous knowledge and local knowledge in understanding and evaluating climate adaptation processes and action is immense and can lead to more effective and sustainable actions to reduce risks and consequences of human-induced climate change."
Univ.-Prof. Dr. mult. Eckhard Nagel - programme coordinator
"There is an urgent need to understand how human and animal health is interlinked and how global change drivers such as climate change, biodiversity loss and land-use change influence this nexus. I am convinced that transdisciplinary education will play a key role in a solution-oriented future. The ECCH degree program, located at the interfaces of medicine, environmental sciences, and social sciences, offers such a great opportunity beyond the boundaries of disciplines."
Dr. Stephanie Thomas - lecturer
