Your Voice Matters: Become a Climate for Health Ambassador

Climate change is accelerating, with growing impacts on human health. Public concern is also increasing, and solutions are at hand. Health professionals are trusted messengers that can help their community, peers, and policymakers turn concern into action.

Training Overview

This free, three-hour training equips health professionals with the knowledge, hands-on experience, and resources to speak and act confidently on climate change solutions. Health professionals are empowered to inspire their colleagues, associations, community, 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 Climate for Health Ambassador Training is available in-person, live online through Climate for Health partners, and now through a *NEW* online, on-demand learning management system! Below are the opportunities for you to join the training and also the community of Climate for Health Ambassadors passionate about being a voice for climate solutions. We hope you'll join us!
