Join us to discuss a vision of sustainability which goes way beyond reducing an organisation’s carbon footprint. The session will explore what does sustainability in a public health context mean, what does it look like and how can it be achieved? Speakers will illustrate how sustainable development and public health are inextricably linked. Achieving sustainable development largely depends on a healthy populace. Consequently, public health represents not only a significant outcome, but a precondition of sustainable development as well. 

This webinar is a must for the health and care workforce and anyone interested in effective public health and how it can address social, environmental and economic wellbeing. Register now.

In this webinar, participants will look at how to implement a sustainable development agenda in the heart of population health. It will explore what we mean by sustainable development and highlight how public health policy and practice are intertwined. The webinar will also reflect NW Directors of Public Health thinking around the importance of sustainable development and how this slots into Local Authority Agendas.

We will explore what we need to do to adequately equip a future health workforce with the vital understanding of how to grow with sustainable development. We will look at how one GP surgery addressed both health inequalities and made a difference to the environment.
