Healthy Planet and NHS Sustainability Day!
The 28th of March is the NHS Sustainability day of action, and the Healthy Planet team have two new exciting actions planned that we wanted to let you all know about!
NHS Fones 4 Forests
As part of Climate week (12th-18th March) and NHS sustainability day on 28thMarch Healthy Planet has teamed up with the NHS forests campaign in a bid to increase awareness about NHS sustainability among students. The NHS Forest is a pioneering program to engage people with a common ground between their personal wellbeing and wider environmental concerns.
In order to improve the NHS sustainability and increase access to green land we are promoting the Fones 4 NHS forests campaign. One phone = One tree planted in your NHS trust!
All we’re asking you to do is bring in your old phones ( or Sat navs) place them in the boxes provided before the 28th of March and you’ll be planting a tree for your local NHS trust promoting NHS sustainability and a greener environment.
If you have any questions about Fones 4 NHS Forests please don’t hesitate to get in touch with email@example.com
Healthy Planet are also doing a photo competition, and want to get as many Healthy Planet/ Medsin branches involved as possible! The idea is simple- get as many people as possible- doctors/nurses/patients/lecturers/students etc. to hold a placard saying they want their NHS to be more sustainable (placard design is included below). The branch which sends us the most photos will get a mystery prize which should help them out over the next year!
Again, if you want to find out more about how to get involved, just firstname.lastname@example.org
