Changes on lifestyles in the Arctic are currently undergoing, due to several factors such as societal evolutions or climate change. Impacts of these changes on the health of Artic inhabitants are visible for example in changes in dietary patterns and livelihoods or in specific challenges of the area (pollution, dispersed settlement, transport infrastructure, ...).
These new challenges in terms of well-being, mental wellness and impact of urbanization on health will be discussed in this seminar.
