8:00am – 12:00 pm EcoAmerica Ambassador Training (Pre-Registration Required) Americans are growing more concerned about climate change. As they witness and experience impacts to their health, livelihoods, and communities, they are increasingly looking for guidance on solutions from leaders in their daily lives – health leaders like you. That is why the National Student Nurses’ Association has partnered with ecoAmerica and the Alliance of Nurses for Healthy Environments to offer the Climate for Health Ambassadors Program. This training will equip you with the knowledge, hands-on experience, and resources to speak and act confidently on climate change.
Upon completion of the training, participants are invited to become a Climate for Health Ambassador. The benefits of becoming an Ambassador include access to tools, tailored resources and events to act and advocate for climate solutions, a private online community of Ambassadors from across the nation who are passionate about being a voice for climate solutions, and on-going staff support.
Once trained, Climate for Health will coordinate with partner organizations to support the Ambassadors and provide opportunities to act. With this training, and a cohort of like-minded leaders, health professionals will be empowered to engage their colleagues, associations, the public, and policymakers to inspire climate solutions that help protect the health of our families and communities, and ensure a prosperous, just, and secure future.
