The Centre for Sustainable Healthcare hosts and supports a number of networks to enable communities of like-minded people to collaborate internationally on sustainability in their clinical specialty or area of interest.

Our green space and health network is a space to highlight the latest research and resources, ask and answer questions, and share your own green space updates and experiences. This forum is designed for health professionals, estates staff, educators, link workers, academics, students, service users and more to connect and engage with others in this field.

NHS Forest conference 2022

By: Vicki Brown

We invite you to join us online for this year’s NHS Forest conference, which will be held online this autumn.

About this event

The more biodiverse our ecosystems, the more resilient they tend to be – to climate change, invasive species, habitat loss and other threats. And the more biodiverse our surroundings, the more resilient our own communities can become, too, as these ecosystems can provide fresh, nutritious food; cleaner air and water; and support the pollinators that sustain our crops, gardens and wider natural environments.

By: Hayley Pinto

With perfect timing, in the midst of a life-threatening heatwave and an undemocratic leadership contest where most of the contenders seem to want to water down this already threadbare plan, the High court has ruled it inadequate and unlawful. They have given the government 8 months to pull something more convincing together, including adequate public and parliamentary scrutiny.  Well done to the Good Law project !
