A brief introduction to the online carbon literacy for healthcare course
Why should healthcare be interested?
A 2021 Lancet report shows we can prevent 125,000 premature deaths in the UK annually by meeting our international climate goals through better “flexitarian” diets, taking more exercise and improving air quality.
Higher gains are made if we went further and focused on the health gains from addressing the climate.
The prize of improved human AND planetary health is there for the taking.
Carbon literacy is an awareness of the carbon costs and impacts of everyday activities and the ability and motivation to reduce emissions, on an individual, community and organisational basis.
This carbon literacy course helps explain and understand:
•What greenhouse gases are and where they come from
•The impact on our climate, our planet and our patients
•The actions we can take today to reduce our emissions and prepare for the future
