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.

Every year a service takes place in Westminster Abbey but there will be other events and actions taking place all over the country.  Please do get in touch ( and let us know what you're planning on climate change and health improvement.  And do publicise it here.
