Health professionals can be a crucial ally in communicating climate change to the public. Through their various touchpoints in all community areas, health professionals represent a trusted voice and interact with people who may not otherwise be engaged in climate change.

Health professionals can be the first contact to members of the             public, asking questions about their health and climate change.
We want to support health professionals as they educate and treat patients.

Here, you will find educational resources that may help you bring awareness to how climate change affects human health and the steps that can be taken to protect ourselves.


Increasing a patient’s knowledge of climate change’s effects, including its adverse impacts on their health, is critical to combat climate change. Integrating climate and nature into health information will empower individuals to interact with nature more and be more engaged with solutions to climate change. 


Evidence-based information helps build the capacity to engage in public health activities related to climate change and the positive impacts for patients when they interact with nature while helping to mitigate climate change and the effects on individual/population health due to climate change.


To help facilitate and foster knowledge of the health effects of climate change while educating people on ways they can positively interact with nature to improve their overall health and reduce their impact on the natural environment.

Health from an Indigenous perspective is a whole and healthy person expressed through a sense of balance of spirit, emotion, mind, and body. Central to wellness is belief in one’s connection to language, land, beings of Creation, and ancestry, supported by a caring family and environment. These resources reflect those beliefs but can be used by any health practitioner to improve the wellness of all people.
