Tuesday, April 7, 2020 – 1:00 PM ET (US and Canada)
The U.S. Call to Action on Climate, Health, and Equity launched in the summer of 2019, and now has support from more than 150 health organizations from across the country. The Call to Action includes a Policy Action Agenda: 10 priority actions to protect and promote health and advance the well-being of all people in the era of climate change. With the right policies and investments today, we have the opportunity to realize our vision of healthy people in healthy places on a healthy planet.
Join us during this webinar series to learn more about the Call to Action and 10 priority actions, how it is being used to organize climate & health advocacy efforts on the national, state and local levels, and how you can become a visible climate leader in this critical year.
