Climate & health communications
Understanding and communicating about the health impacts of climate change, as well as climate solutions for the health care sector can be challenging. Whether you're a health professional, journalist, or advocate for climate action, we provide resources that address these issues and provide guidance on how to become effective climate and health communicators.
The latest report with the results of the largest survey of health professionals in Australia on climate change, conducted by Climate and Health Alliance in partnership with five of our member groups: the Australian Nursing and Midwifery Federation, the Public Health Association of Australia, the Royal Australasian College of Physicians, the Australian Medical Students Association and the Australian Health Promotion Association.
This Salud sin Daño document is based on the experience of journalists from Latin America with outstanding careers in fields of science, health, data, and energy journalism who reflect on their own practice and share their knowledge and recommendations with colleagues. The different sections of the guide contain useful ideas, tips, and tools for incorporating health and health sector issues into climate change coverage from the initial moment a topic is addressed or a story is conceived.
The guide is designed to prepare healthcare workers for various conversations about climate change and subsequent health impacts with their patients, communities, to respond to media, legislators, policymakers, and for a range of various communication purposes.
Health professionals’ self-assessed knowledge about climate change is low, although their willingness to learn more is high. The Climate and Health Alliance's six learning modules cover different communications areas that aim to build capacity within the health care sector to understand and communicate climate change challenges and opportunities for public health.
Health professional experiences and stories are powerful, can shift behavior, and compel action to help protect our climate, our health, and our future. Our visual storytelling guide will assist you in expressing your stories and reflecting on the stories of those around you.
