Join us at COP26 for a talk on Nursing Leadership at the Intersection of Climate & Health
Join us for a special virtual event on November 11th @ 11:15 – 12:15 GMT+1 co-hosted by the International Council of Nurses and the Alliance of Nurses for Healthy Environments as part of the COP26 Health Programme. Making up the majority of the health workforce, nurses can make a powerful contribution to both mitigate climate change and to support people and communities around the world to adapt to its impacts. This webinar event will showcase nursing leadership and interdisciplinary cross-sector collaboration on climate change and health. Featuring a panel discussion with nurses around the world, speakers will share examples of nursing leadership in climate action, influencing and advocating for change at institutional, systems, and at a policy level.
