Registrars committed to environmentally sustainable training
Environmental degradation and climate change have been identified as the greatest public health threats of the 21st century.
As the next generation of public health leaders, registrars require the capacity, knowledge and skills to protect the population from climate impacts, as well as exploit opportunities for health improvement.
The UK Public Health Registrar Sustainable Development Network brings together registrars with an interest in environmental sustainability. The network’s Training Regions Update Report presents the results of a 2016 environmental sustainability review of public health training across the UK.
As well as presenting case studies of projects undertaken by registrars that investigate and manage the health impacts of sustainable and unsustainable development, the report demonstrates a commitment by registrars to develop their own practice in a manner that recognises environmental sustainability and outlines progress achieved in embedding these principles into public health training programmes across the UK.
The network meets every 2-3 months by teleconference. All public health registrars are welcome to join. Please contact chairs Darryl Quantz at and Dawn Jenkins at for further information.
