Event Details

Come along to our Climate Café in Inverness – a space, for people to get together to talk and act on climate change! Hot drinks will be provided between 6.30 – 7pm.

THEME: Health & Sustainable Healthcare with Dr Rory Gibson (​Medical Education Fellow in Sustainable Healthcare Education) and Dr Andew Dallas (Undergraduate Sustainability Lead for Medical Education at NHS Highland).

Have you thought about how the climate crisis is linked with the health crisis? When it comes to our nation’s carbon emissions, the NHS contributes between 4-5% of overall emissions! There is still so much to understand and learn about the relationships between our health, healthcare systems, and the climate. Join us to discuss what a healthcare system that is better for our health and our climate could look like.

We are moving our normal climate café slot to later in the month on the 26th as a one-off to coincide with Scotland’s Climate Week and the Highlands and Islands Climate Festival. The Highland & Islands Climate Festival is a celebration of localism and community engagement with a focus on climate action to be held for the whole of September 2023!

What is a Climate Café? A Climate Café is a community-led, informal, inclusive and inspiring space to get together, share ideas, information and get involved in climate action locally.

What is it like to go along to a Climate Café? Climate Cafés are relaxed and informal, so you should be able to just drop in, have a cuppa, and a chat – just like any café! It is a space where everyone gets to contribute and the conversation moves through the topics people are interested in. Expect the chat to be wide ranging, with a positive focus on what we can do!
