With the help of more than 20 fabulous volunteers, the Clinic offered ‘climate and health checks’ to hundreds of festival-goers, and those who wished to could have their own prescription for ‘climate and health’.
The prescriptions acted as a checklist to assist people identify actions that they could take in their own lives that would cut emissions and improve their own and/or population health at the same time.
Download Your Prescription for a Healthy Life and Healthy Planet – or even better, print some out and offer them to friends, family or patients.
The popup clinic idea and the prescriptions offer a great health promotion tool to use the health ‘frame’ to talk about climate change, and help raise awareness of the health benefits associated with cutting emissions – a WIN! WIN! situation.
