What is the aim of the One Health EJP Summer School 2021?

The environment is one pillar of One Health, and environmental issues need to be illustrated and discussed in their multi faceted aspects: risk assessment, role of ecosystem related factors, role of man made factors, the farm as environmental modifier, and the issue of sustainability.

Therefore, this Summer School will be split into 4 modules:

Module 1: this module will include One Health topics such as planetary health, environmental risk assessment, climate change, zoonoses and antimicrobial resistance in the natural environment, the use of genomics in surveillance, wildlife, feeds, health sustainability and epidemiology.

Module 2: this module will be a workshop on One Health, sustainability and food security delivered by the FAO.

Module 3: this module will consist of two workshops from our partners in Italy (IZS and ISS). These workshops will work on two different One Health case studies:

  1. One Health surveillance of AMR
  2. A multidisciplinary One Health approach to environmental pollution.

Module 4: this module will include topics such as integrated risk analysis, One Health governance and science to society understanding.
