Fighting Fracking and Fossil Fuel Divestment – how health professionals can help build a Fossil Free world

January 26 @ 2:00 pm - 5:15 pm

Event Navigation

Join global health charity Medact and Concerned Health Professionals UK for an afternoon of talks and workshops in Leeds. We’ll explore how health professionals can help build a fossil free world and discuss our role in campaigning against fracking and advocating for fossil fuel divestment. 

Sessions will include:

  • The Health Impacts of Fracking; and how we can advocate for a fracking ban.
  • Fossil Fuel Divestment – how health professionals can use it as a tool for climate action and clean air.

Health professionals from all fields are welcome. Please email deirdreduff@medact.org for more information and fill out the form below to register for your free ticket. 

The fossil fuel industry is driving climate change and contributing to air pollution; both of which are claiming lives and damaging the health of millions. Efforts to extract fossil fuels using fracking techniques also present a range of health risks to local communities in the UK. We hope you can join us as we work together for a healthier, safer and fairer world powered by renewable energy. Please share this with colleagues who may be interested. 

The event will take place in The Gallery Room, 10-12 East Parade, Leeds.
