Registration is open for this webinar by Health Care Without Harm:

Creative Climate Advocacy
March 12, 2020 – 12:00pm (EST)



As the climate crisis worsens, health professionals are turning toward innovative forms of advocacy to demand immediate climate action to protect the health of their patients and our future.

Session Description

Health professionals have a vital role to play at this critical time by calling attention to the many ways climate change impacts health. In this webinar, you will hear from three clinicians about the innovative ways they are mobilizing health care colleagues, drawing attention to the health impacts of climate change, and redefining health professional climate advocacy in the era of the climate crisis.

Increasingly, health professionals are concerned about the climate crisis and are motivated to find ways to take effective action. As trusted messengers they have many opportunities to leverage their influence and expertise to advocate for climate policy solutions to protect health. However, given the urgency of the climate crisis, along with inadequate governmental action, health professionals are turning to nontraditional forms of advocacy, including civil disobedience, to demand immediate solutions to protect our future.

Learning Objectives

Webinar participants will learn about innovative ways health professionals are taking action, including:

  • Demonstrating at Fire Drill Fridays
  • Delivering inspirational “climate train talks”
  • Forming nonviolent, clinician climate action groups with support from the Climate Disobedience Center
  • Calling on their institutions to divest from fossil fuels
