Posts Tagged ‘The Wave’

Doctors, nurses and students highlighted the health benefits of tackling climate change in the lead up to the mass climate change march The Wave on 5 December. Wearing blue scrubs, pushing a hospital bed carrying a ‘sick’ globe and distributing ‘prescriptions’ for a healthy planet the group aimed to raise awareness of the threat of climate change to human health here and around the world.

On the march the Health Wave group also met the Climate Change Secretary Ed Miliband to deliver him the message “what’s good for the climate is good for your health”.
