Who are we?
We are an international collaboration of medical students and medical school faculty members engaged in implementing climate and sustainability education at our own institutions.
To empower healthcare students and faculty members worldwide to integrate climate and sustainability education into their curricula. We will do this by creating open source educational content and guides for implementation.
Who are the collaborators?
We are a collaboration currently made up of faculty members and medical students from universities in the US, UK and Central America. We all have experience in integrating climate change and sustainability teaching into the medical curriculum and want to share our methods and educational materials.
