EHESP School of Public Health has signed the Health Educators Climate Commitment, joining 118 schools from across the world to ensure his students, the next generation of health professionals, are prepared, through education and training, to effectively address the health impacts of climate change and to ensure that the world has a cadre of climate change and health experts.


Climate change is no longer a problem for future generations – we are already feeling its effects in every corner of our nation and across the globe, which threatens our economic and national security and our health. No country is immune, and therefore all countries must act together, and that is what the Paris climate negotiations are all about. Today’s commitments reinforce how vast the impacts of climate change are and how great the opportunity to join together and address this problem together is.
