Right now, many Americans are growing more concerned about climate change.
As we witness and experience impacts on our health, livelihoods, and communities, we are increasingly looking for guidance on solutions from leaders in our daily lives — health, faith, and community.
Our work through Climate for Health is to support major health institutions and health professionals with training on the links between climate and health, and the spectrum of solutions, how to speak effectively on the topic of climate change, and opportunities to act and advocate.
This training equips health professionals with the knowledge, hands-on experience, and resources to speak and act confidently on climate change and solutions. Health professionals will be empowered to inspire their colleagues, associations, clients, the public, and policymakers to be empowered in making a change on climate solutions that help protect the health of our families and communities now, and ensure a prosperous, just, and secure future.
The full training requires a four-hour timeslot, ideally at a national or regional conference, or other large gathering of health professionals.
- 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 full training, health professionals will be given Climate for Health Ambassador designation. These leaders will be invited to be listed on your organization’s website, and the Climate for Health website, as trained leaders who can be scheduled to present on climate and health.
