RCPCH Conference Birmingham 2024
Birmingham will welcome the Royal College of Paediatrics and Child Health to their annual conference in Birmingham in March 2024. Join us for various Air Quality and Active travel focussed events.
In 2023, RFTL returned to Glasgow ahead of the RCPCH annual conference, where climate change was a focus and the work of the Climate Change Working Group was showcased.
A group of paediatricians rode 27 miles (43 km) starting from Falkirk High railway station to the Scottish Event Campus. They cycled a gentle pace on Sustrans route 754 along the (tarmacked) canal towpath, allowing pauses to take in the glorious scenery, for refreshments and - crucially - conversation to inspire climate action.
Birmingham will welcome the Royal College of Paediatrics and Child Health to their annual conference in Birmingham in March 2024. There will be more than 1000 delegates present. Many of our children live in poor circumstances in an environment that creates a lifelong trajectory of poor health. They are denied the basic human rights of being able to be physically active and to breath clean air. This needs to change. We will mark the Conference and their demand for child health to improve
- with communities, sports and biking clubs getting on their bikes in and around our city on Sunday the 24th of March
The day will culminate with cyclists gathering in Centenary Square for a short ride in the city centre at 2.30 pm coordinated by Kidical Mass followed by a brief address again in Centenary Square at 3.00 pm by a Camilla Kingdon the President of the Royal College of Paediatrics and Child Health.
