Dear ASPHER Members,
ASPHER as a member of the Global Consortium on Climate and Health Education (GCCHE), is collaborating on a survey to gather insights into the current state of curriculum integration regarding climate change in public health institutions. The survey is supported through the Global Network for Academic Public Health (GNAPH) and the Capacity Building Subcommittee of the WHO Civil Society Working Group to Advance Action on Health and Climate Change to disseminate and collect response worldwide.
We invite you to participate in the brief 5-15 minute survey aimed to understand how climate and health knowledge and skills are integrated into academic public health worldwide. The survey will inquire about courses on climate change at your institution and how those concepts are assessed.
Participation in the survey on behalf of institutions is entirely voluntary and responses will be kept confidential and anonymous.
This survey should be completed by the following individuals:
- Faculty members, academics and/or course coordinators who design or teach climate and/or planetary health related content and curriculum.
- Faculty members, academics and/or course coordinators who are familiar with climate and/or planetary health related content currently being taught at the school.
We ask that you kindly complete this survey by November 1, 2023 and distribute it to any relevant faculty or staff at your institution or in your network.
To access the survey, please click on the following link:
Thank you in advance for your vital partnership in this important endeavor. By working together, we can make a significant impact in addressing the challenges of climate change and promoting a healthier and more sustainable future.
