Key activities of the working group
The climate crisis and the threat of exceeding further planetary boundaries is seen as one of the greatest threats to human health. The rapidly growing scientific evidence base on this development is still not widely known.
In the field of mitigation (prevent the unmanageable) and adaptation (manage the unpreventable) there are countless opportunities for action. People in health care professions or in the health care sector have both a special responsibility and special opportunities.
We want to sensitize health care professionals for this responsibility and provide them with options for action by conducting several research projects and enable them to move from knowledge to concrete action.
