Fighting for intergenerational justice – midwives can be climate champions

Alison Reid urges midwives to get involved in the fossil fuel divestment movement as a means of acting on climate change. Babies being born today face a future marred by climate breakdown if we do not act urgently. Climate action is far more than an environmental concern – it’s a matter of intergenerational justice and crucial to protect human health.

Doctors Against Diesel

Doctors Against Diesel are calling for the use of diesel fuels to be banned in our urban areas and progressively phased out elsewhere. We want to see a future in which personal exposure to soot and gases from vehicles is dramatically reduced, and that a choice to travel actively (walking, cycling, with public transport) does not result in increased personal exposure.
