Fighting Fracking and Fossil Fuel Divestment – how health professionals can help build a Fossil Free world
Saturday 26th January, 2019 @ 2:00 pm - 5:15 pm
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 [email protected] 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, Avenue HQ, 10-12 East Parade, Leeds.
