About Climate Action Nurses
Climate Action Nurses (CAN) operates on a powerful theory of change, envisioning a sustainable future through three key impacts. Firstly, we champion the concept of Climate Ready Healthcare, emphasizing the urgent need for healthcare systems to adapt to the challenges posed by climate change. CAN promotes the implementation of resilient infrastructure, preparedness plans, and training programs to ensure healthcare facilities can effectively respond to climate-related emergencies and safeguard patient well-being.
Secondly, CAN strives to foster Climate Friendly Communities by actively engaging with local stakeholders. We advocate for sustainable urban planning, green spaces, and access to clean air and water, aiming to lower emissions both inside and outside of the healthcare sector.
Finally, CAN is committed to empowering, educating and activating Climate Smart Nurses, so that we can harness the power of the largest healthcare workforce to step up, step forward and lead.
