Education for Sustainable Healthcare - Co-creating our Planetary Health

The Medical Schools Council is hosting a conference looking at the response of medical schools to the climate and ecosystem crisis. Participants should expect lively discussion and interaction during this unique event. We will have presentations ranging from medical students involved in the declaration of climate and ecological emergency, to examples of how medical schools are implementing the GMC’s requirement for sustainability teaching.
