"Our climate crisis may, at times, appear to be happening slowly, but in fact it is happening very quickly-and has become a true planetary emergency." (Al Gore)
On a daily basis we are bombarded with new information about the catastrophic impact our global economy is having on the environment we live. From plastic oceans to global warming we cant escape the fact that we are destroying our planet. From the considerable amount of waste we generate in theatres to the global warming potential of the anaesthetic gases we use, we are part of the problem. But don't fear...
"The Chinese expression for crisis consists of two characters. The first is a symbol for danger; the second is a symbol for opportunity." (Again thanks Al Gore)
We have an opportunity to reduce the impact of our work and improve the environment for the people we work with and the people we work for, both now and in the future.
We want to create a network of like minded people within healthcare, who want to reduce the environmental impact of our profession and protect our planet.
Through education, collaboration and motivation we can learn together and set up projects aimed at reducing our environmental footprint.
