Following the NSW Nurses and Midwives’ Association’s recent Environmental Health Seminar earlier this month, a further education opportunity has arisen, facilitated by the Climate and Health Alliance (CAHA).
As we approach the federal election we’ve heard there is an appetite for finding out more about climate change and health, and to do something about it. That’s why we are very proud to announce the details for our next Climate Health Champions Workshop in Sydney.
Health professionals are among the most trusted occupations in the country, and the power of your voice is hugely important to bringing about change in climate policy. This workshop is designed to provide you with the knowledge, skills and confidence to use that voice.
Where: NSWNMA Office, 50 O’Dea Avenue, Waterloo, NSW 2017
When: Saturday 27 April 2018, 8:30am – 4:30pm
What: A one day training workshop that will give you the skills, knowledge and confidence to:
- Talk about the links between climate change and health to colleagues, friends and family members;
- Participate in coordinated actions to shape government policy on climate and health;
- Talk to the media and tell your story effectively;
- Influence your own local politicians and institutions to take meaningful action.
Cost: $30 CAHA and NSWNMA members – $40 general public – $10 students
