Climate change undeniably poses many risks to our health, making it one of the greatest public health challenges of our time. Climate change is affecting our health
in many forms — from the access and nutritional value of our food supply, to the quality of air that we breathe, to the safety of where we live, work and play. Stronger and more climate-resilient health systems can save lives and protect from future climate risks. Understanding the connection between climate change and human health is essential to fostering healthy solutions for a sustainable future.
- Raise awareness by educating our members that climate change is a public health issue and not just an environmental health or an environmental issue.
- Mobilize leaders who are interested in climate change but have not started to take action.
