The American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) is a new partner of Climate for Health, a network of health leaders committed to protecting the health and well-being of Americans by leading on a path to a positive future for climate solutions. By joining Climate for Health, we commit to implementing climate solutions within our own organization, and working together to prepare, empower, and inspire our members, staff, communities, peers, and the nation on climate change solutions
We encourage AAP members, Chapters, and Districts to join the Climate for Health program at www.ClimateforHealth.org. The program provides a suite of resources that enable institutions to lead by example by increasing climate-friendly activities in facility operations, and elevating their climate leadership by inviting their community to do the same.
Joining Climate for Health gives you access to:
• A fresh approach to launch or elevate your climate leadership by empowering you to demonstrate action on climate, then speak about and inspire others in ways that are relevant to your health community and resonate with a broad diversity of Americans (who may not yet be convinced on climate).
• Tools and resources that offer the latest and most promising practices for climate leadership including information, resources, webinars, and research-driven communications tools packaged in a comprehensive, easy-to-use program website.
• A new platform to amplify your voice on climate by providing you opportunities to promote and be recognized for your efforts through social media, press outreach, success stories, and special campaign activities.
• A community of other leaders including opportunities to access to share ideas, collaborate, and build collective impact among other health leaders through a robust social media community, online forums, and online and on-the-ground events.
Join Climate for Health and become part of a national network of leaders empowering others to care for climate change as part of caring for their own health.
