Welcome to Future Societies


The goal of the current stage of the project “Forecasting Societies’ Adaptive Capacities to Climate Change” is to accumulate evidence on education as an important health determinant. The objective is to identify different causal pathways and mechanisms, by which education affects mortality and health. Two meta-studies will be conducted to summarize the state of the art of infant and child mortality in connection to mother’s education and adult and old age mortality in connection to own education.
