On Sept 25th, prior to the fall 2019 Canadian federal election, ONEIG facilitated a webinar with Gideon Forman of the David Suzuki Foundation. In our current global context of a climate emergency and its related devastating human health impacts, it is imperative to mobilize the nursing climate action vote. This hour-long interactive webinar on climate change explored the opportunities for nursing advocacy in the context of a federal election.
Key learning objectives included understanding:
- Why the upcoming federal election was important in relation to Canada’s role in mitigating climate change
- The RNAO's federal election environmental platform
- Ways to mobilize the vote for climate action in our communities while remaining non-partisan
A toolkit to accompany this webinar is available here.
