As healthcare professionals and researchers, we must take responsibility for our young patients' futures. Supporting research and education about the influence of climate change on child health and giving a voice to this vital topic are the big aims of the SIG planetary health group. We also support research on the influence of the health sector on global warming and the possibilities to reduce the CO2 footprint of pediatric health care.
The primary goals of the planetary health group are:
- creating a network within the ESPR for collecting ideas on planetary health and child health studies and putting those ideas into action
- supporting articles on planetary health in the Pediatric RESEARCH magazine
- establishing planetary health congress sessions
- presenting your hospital's climate project at congresses and in the Pediatric RESEARCH magazine
