Out now: A guide for primary care on declaring a climate emergency

Friday 09 July 2021

Is your organisation interested in declaring a climate emergency? What does declaring a climate emergency mean?

Here's a quick summary of what you can do:

  1. Tell the truth: acknowledge this is an emergency
  2. Act now: take radical steps to halt biodiversity loss and reduce greenhouse gas emissions to zero by 2040 (or ideally much sooner)
  3. Collaborate: work with others to create new solutions

SEE Sustainability has developed a guide, aimed at practices and primary health networks, to help you understand what declaring a climate emergency means, how to take action and an example pledge. Find the guide here.
