Climate NI, in collaboration with WHO Belfast Healthy Cities and the Department of Health, are establishing a Health and Wellbeing Network, which aims to share information and guide action on climate change within the wider health community in Northern Ireland. There is no cost or obligation involved in joining.
We have developed the Climate NI Health and Wellbeing Platform using this ‘Knowledge Hub’ website, to provide a forum for sharing and discussing articles, a library for new guidance, case studies and reports and also a section to list relevant events.
This is very much a live platform, which will only be as good as the engagement it receives. We’ll do our best to respond to changes but we need your input to develop a community with lively discussion on the biggest questions uncertainties or valuable information which relates to this huge topic.
You can find the new network site here: https://khub.net/group/climate-ni-health-wellbeing-network/group-home. If you are interested then please sign up, we would love to have you on board. See below for further details.
Why is it needed?
This regional network is for organisations, health practitioners and individuals interested in climate and health issues relevant to Northern Ireland, to enable access and sharing of information on risks as well as potential responses and solutions.
What information is available?
This should be news, resources or articles directly relevant to the topic of climate and health. The site will be moderated by Climate NI and Belfast Healthy Cities, which provide the secretariat for the Network.
Members can post and read contributions to this site under three key areas:
1. Library - A range of uploaded documents including 'Key Resources for Health Professionals'. Click the plus sign at the top to upload a new document.
Please note: (The Library only allows documents like PDFs - links MUST be posted in the forum)
