Empowering colleagues to take action on carbon emissions

Climate change lunch and learn events series 2
Following the success of the 2021 lunch and learns, we held a 2022 series of events to share knowledge and experience related to NHS sustainability. We heard from experts both within and outside the NHS as we work together to help address the climate and biodiversity emergencies.
If you missed any of the events or want a recap, we have posted all the recordings from the events on this page. Events took place on a Friday at 12 noon and lasted for one hour.
If you know of someone who would be interested in presenting, or have any ideas for future topics please contact Emma Clarke, Energy, Waste and Sustainability Manager on emma.

Climate change lunch and learn events series 1
In 2021 we joined Humber, Coast and Vale Health and Care Partnership in hosting a series of hour-long educational sessions to address the challenges we face with climate change and the impact this will have on our healthcare system, as well as the populations we serve. We encouraged colleagues to join us live to delve into the challenges we face and get involved.
