What is climate change? What is causing it? Why is it now an urgent issue for us all? As one of the world’s leading health services, planetary scale climate change is something the NHS cannot choose to ignore. Join us on a journey to explore the complexities of climate science and intricacies of global connectedness. Hear how our NHS is responding. Understand why we must lead in integrating sustainable practices into all that we do. Join the discussion and help shape the conversation on how we build our sustainable NHS.

This one day conference, organised by Dr Tim Malone, is a joint collaboration between the Royal Devon and Exeter Hospital, the University of Exeter, Devon Local Nature Partnership, and the NHS England and Public Health England Sustainability and Health Ambassadors for Devon.

Topics will include:

  • What is climate change?

  • How is the NHS responding locally, regionally and nationally?
  • Teaching sustainable practice in nursing
  • The wider role of nature in health and disease
  • Business as usual? The economics of doing nothing
  • Climate change, conflict and global security
