One of the main purposes of the CATCH project is to communicate climate change and its impact on human health (climate-health) as well as communication on climate action that strives to deliver climate and health co-benefits (actions that have benefits for both the climate and human health). This communication will take place through the online event and a short animation film will also be produced to further communicate climate-health and climate action highlighting the importance of co-benefits. A large focus of the project is on the environmental and health benefits of green spaces and trees. Through the CATCH project, twenty participants from the local community will be given a tree for them to plant and care for.
