The effects of climate change on health consist in people’s reduced capacity to respond to environmental stimuli, reflected in deteriorations in physical and cognitive performance, leading to increased dangers to people’s health. For example, global warming represents a risk for heat-related illnesses. As a result, there is a clear need to develop and introduce suitable strategies to counter these threats, which represent a new challenge for future research. This event falls within the scope of the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goal 13: Climate action.
