Health professionals know the students are right, climate change is an emergency
Climate Change will impact health for generations to come. On September 20th and 27th, students around the world are hitting the streets to call for for bold action on climate. Health professionals have a critical role to play. We are not calling on health professionals to go on strike, but we can bring health delegations to the student demonstrations during our breaks or day off, and show strong support via workplace actions and letters.
