The Nurses Climate Challenge Europe aims to:
- Mobilise nurses across Europe to educate their colleagues about the impacts of climate change on human health
- Build a European network of informed and engaged health professionals in care settings
- Launch a movement of health professionals committed to climate solutions in care settings and in the community
Nurse Climate Champions receive access to a free, comprehensive, and growing set of easy-to-use resources that make educating their colleagues on climate and health simple. Nurse Climate Champions across Europe can use these materials to host small or large educational events (e.g. at a staff meeting) and report the number of health professionals they have educated.
The Nurses Climate Challenge Europe is delivered by Health Care Without Harm (HCWH) Europe. It is a Europe-wide campaign aiming to leverage the unique and trusted voice of nurses to motivate the healthcare sector to take climate action.
Health Care Without Harm (HCWH) Europe is a non-profit network of European hospitals and healthcare providers, healthcare systems, local authorities, research/academic institutions and environmental and health organisations. We currently have 151 members in 33 countries.
We aim to transform the European healthcare sector so that it reduces its environmental footprint, becomes a community anchor for sustainability, and a leader in the global movement for environmental health and justice.
