Nursing School Commitments

Climate change is gaining attention as a health threat, making it an important aspect of nursing care. However, curricular content addressing climate and health is not yet the norm in nursing programmes.

We are therefore looking to partner with a small and engaged group of nursing schools from across Europe to establish a Nursing School Commitment - a commitment from nursing schools to include environmental health in their curricula

As a first step in this process, we will be establishing a Working Group, which will collaborate to draft the text for the Commitment. The Working Group will also be the first group of nursing schools to sign the Commitment once it is finalised (target September 2021). The Commitment document will then be made available to all European nursing schools to become signatories.

Is your nursing school committed to climate action and would you like to join this Working Group? If so, please get in touch with us at for more information. We will send a formal invitation letter to join the Nursing School Commitment Working Group to those interested, as well as a registration letter. The deadline to send signed registration letters is 15 March 2021.
