So I have committed to writing a blog (there is a first time for everything!). My own private journey into a year, and hopefully much longer, of trying to raise awareness of climate change and its devastating effects on human health. And how we as nurses can help, both in our professional and private lives. I’m not an academic writer. Its not my strong point. But I’m passionate about what I do, I love nursing and I want to do something which will make a difference.
So I’m going to make changes. All those things we know we’re supposed to do to stop global warming, such as turning the plugs off and not leaving the light on, and cycling instead of driving? I’m going to try and do them. I will let you know how I get on!
And more importantly I am going to work hard to raise the nursing community’s awareness of this issue in the hope that more will join me in trying to change things for the better.
