Climate Health Spokesperson Network
The Climate Health Spokesperson Network is a network of healthcare professionals, including clinical, allied healthcare and public health from across UKHACC member organisations, who have received advocacy and media training to enable them to communicate on climate and health.
The network has a broad cross-section of experience, from leaders with a track record stretching back decades and including multiple national media appearances to rising stars. They have all taken on roles and responsibilities above and beyond their day jobs to help solve the climate and nature crisis, from sitting on committees to establishing new national networks.
Members of the network deliver advocacy by:
- Participating in media interviews
- Meeting with politicians and policy makers
- Writing opinion and comment pieces
- Providing quotes for press releases and statements
- Cascading information through their organisation’s communications channels
- Speaking at and participating in events and workshops
- Joining committees and working groups
