Nurses Climate Challenge


Nurses Climate Challenge

The Alliance of Nurses for Healthy Environments has partnered with Health Care Without Harm in launching the Nurses Climate Challenge. The Nurses Climate Challenge is an international effort to educate 5,000 health professionals on climate and health, with nurses leading the education. Nurses can visit nursesclimatechallenge.org and register to become a Nurse Climate Champion. Champions will then have access to a comprehensive set of tools including:

  • Outline and suggested steps for planning educational events (e.g. grand rounds, lunch and learn programs, staff meetings)
  • Sample emails to engage hospital leadership
  • Resources for educational events, including promotional posters, sample slides for presentations, regional data, and tips and strategies for talking about climate change
  • Easy to use guide for taking climate action in practice and home settings

Champions are able to track the amount of people educated and see progress in reaching the challenge goals on the online platform. By acting to address climate change, nurses have an opportunity to improve health on a global scale. Join us in the Nurses Climate Challenge!
