Climate & Health Social Media Advocacy Training

Are you a health professional who cares about climate change? Do you want to be more active about it on social media? Would you like to learn more about how to talk about climate and health? Come to this new training, developed by the Global Climate and Health Alliance and the UK Health Alliance on Climate Change. You will learn:

  • A quick recap of the latest science on climate change and human health
  • A brief summary of why this year is vital for climate change, what COP26 is and what policies health professionals can be calling for
  • General principles to communicate climate and health
  • How and why to communicate about climate and health on social media

The session will be run interactively – you will need to make sure you have a twitter account before the session, and you will practice tweeting during the session. We will share additional materials after the session to help you such as:

  • Lists of suggested organisationsto follow on twitter
  • Do’s and don’ts tip list
  • 5 minute videos that help explain further aspects of communicating health and climate change

Come and join the growing global movement of health professionals advocating for policies that protect planetary and population health. This event invitation is administered by GCHA, who will collect all attendee details.
