Americans are growing more concerned about climate change. In our most recent polling, ecoAmerica’s research shows that since 2015, there’s been a 15-point increase—from 31% to 45%—in Americans who are very concerned about climate change. As people witness and experience impacts on their health, livelihoods, and communities, they are increasingly looking for guidance on solutions from leaders in their daily lives. Health leaders are some of the most trusted messengers for information on climate change. The Climate for Health Ambassador Training equips health professionals with knowledge, hands-on experience, and resources to speak and act confidently on climate change and solutions. With this training, health professionals will be able to engage their colleagues, associations, the public, and policymakers to inspire climate solutions that help protect the health of our families and communities now, and ensure a prosperous, just, and secure future. All trained Ambassadors are provided guidance and resources online, and are brought together quarterly to share learnings, best practices, and updates.
The training will run the full 4 hours, and we will provide breaks throughout the training. Please plan to attend all portions of the training.
Live-streamed workshops will be run through Zoom Meetings. Please make sure you are able to participate using your computer microphone and webcam. Workshop organizers will receive a list of registrants prior to the start of the conference and may provide participants with supplemental materials. These workshops have been designed to be highly interactive and open discussion and participation is encouraged.
