The NurSusTOOLKIT has been developed with partners in Spain, Germany and The Netherlands, using an evidence-based approach to provide core competencies for sustainability literacy in nursing and midwifery that support the European agenda on climate change. This event is the chance to preview the toolkit before the official launch that will take place in Germany later in 2017.
Since 1965 the International Council of Nurses has celebrated International Nurses Day - on Florence Nightingale's Birthday. This year the theme will be achieving the Sustainable Development Goals. The UN 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development is a set of seventeen aspirational "Global Goals" with 169 targets between them. These include action on poverty, climate change, health and improving the sustainability of cities.

Although the concept of sustainability has been explored in the literature, inclusion of sustainability topics in nursing and healthcare curricula is limited. The aim of the European NurSusTOOLKIT project is to enhance the availability of an evidence-based, learning offer in Sustainability Literacy and Competency (SLC) in nurse education by developing innovative teaching and learning approaches and materials.
