ADPH Priorities

Climate Change & Sustainability

The ADPHY&H have prioritised Climate and Health as a key issue with a clear call to action. Human health goes hand in hand with the planet’s health. But right now society’s actions are hurting our health and the planet. We have it within our power to change the things that will make the most difference. We have the opportunity to redesign our energy system so that we are powered by affordable and clean energy and to help communities prepare for the impacts of climate change that are already locked in. Action on climate change and a just transition to a low carbon, cleaner energy future, provides one of the greatest opportunities to improve health and reduce inequalities. Too often we view action on climate as restrictive and a sacrifice. We are providing ongoing guidance and key resources for Public Health colleagues and partners through the work of the Fellowship.
