Americans are growing more concerned about climate change. As they witness and experience impacts to their health, livelihoods, and communities, they are increasingly looking for guidance on solutions, from leaders in their daily lives – including public health leaders like you.
The American Public Health Association and ecoAmerica are partnering to offer the Climate for Health Ambassadors Training Program on Tuesday, May 11. Join us for a free, interactive 4-hour training that will cover the links between climate and health, the spectrum of solutions, speaking effectively on the topic, and opportunities to act and advocate.
Upon completion of the full training and signing the Climate for Health Ambassadors Agreement (optional), public health professionals (and students!) will be given Climate for Health Ambassador designation. These leaders will be invited to be listed publicly as trained leaders who are available to present on climate and health.
When: Tuesday, May 11, 2021; 12:30-4:30 pm EDT (Please plan to attend all 4 hours)
Who: Health Professionals
What We Will Cover:
Section 1: Introduction, Climate Change Overview, Climate Impacts on Health
Section 2: Climate Solutions and Health Benefits (National, State, Local, Professional, and Personal)
Section 3: Advocacy and Engagement: Communicating on Climate and Health (language guidance, creating a personalized climate message)
