Climate change as a result of global warming will have major consequences for our already overloaded health system and for nurses and nursing. Climate change is giving rise to fundamental health issues and the consequences of inaction will be catastrophic. It’s important that nurses understand this issue and contribute to finding a solution.
NSWNMA is affiliated with the Climate and Health Alliance to raise awareness of the consequences of climate change for the health sector. We are also affiliated with the Global Green and Healthy Hospitals Network.
The Climate and Health Alliance has recently extended its thanks to the NSWNMA, who are a much-appreciated supporting organisation of the collaborative Our Climate, Our Health campaign which acknowledges that as health professionals we are already seeing the devastating effects of climate change on our community every day and we have an opportunity to encourage our members of Parliament to act on climate change now.
