During the third quarter of 2018, Dr S Kisting was invited to participate in the “24 Hours of Reality: Protect Our Planet, Protect Ourselves”, live broadcast global event. This event was produced by the Climate Reality Project and was headed by Mr Al Gore, former Deputy President of the USA. Her contribution focused on health and the possible avenues to prevent adverse health outcomes as a result of climate change. In the South African context, the focus was specifically on coal emissions and those from other extractive industries, and on highlighting the effects on workplaces and the surrounding communities atlarge, as a result of these pollutants.
