Globally, we are witnessing and experiencing impacts on health, livelihoods, and communities as a result of climate change. Nurses are becoming increasingly more interested in learning about climate change and its related health impacts, as well as their role in addressing this issue through their own actions and supporting equitable climate solutions in their professional associations/clinics/hospitals and with policymakers.
The Climate for Health Ambassadors Training equips nurses and other health professionals with knowledge, hands on experience, and resources to speak and act confidently on climate change and solutions. With this training, nurses, nursing students, and health professionals will be able to engage their colleagues, associations, the public, and policymakers to inspire climate solutions that help protect the health of our families and communities now, and ensure a prosperous, just, and secure future.
This comprehensive training, hosted in partnership with the Alliance of Nurses for Healthy Environments and Climate for Health, includes a mixture of information sharing and hands on practice to build knowledge, skill, and confidence following the format below:
Section 1: Introduction, Climate Change Overview, Climate Impacts on Health
Section 2: Climate Solutions and Health Benefits (National, State, Local, Professional, and Personal)
Section 3: Advocacy and Engagement: Communicating on Climate and Health (language guidance, creating a personalized climate message)
Upon completion of the training, participants will have the option to receive an official Climate for Health Ambassador designation. As a Climate for Health Ambassadors, participants will receive access to a suite of online tools and resources to support their actions on climate solutions and their communications efforts with diverse audiences.
