April 22, 2020, marks the 50th anniversary of Earth Day.
Practice Greenhealth members are again sharing their plans for celebrating and educating in conjunction with this global event. Share your commitment this Earth Day:
Join us for a free Earth Day sharing call on Feb. 20 to hear about Earth Day planning and to share your plans.
- Create a brief video explaining why Earth Day is important to you and what you are doing at work or at home to honor its 50th anniversary. We have developed some suggestions for members to film and share their videos. Guidelines here. Post your video to social media.
Earth Day is more than a celebration of our planet and conservation efforts. It is also an opportunity to share resources that help you achieve your health care mission of improving the health and well-being of the people you serve, from patients and staff to the surrounding community.
What if every day at your hospital was Earth Day? Adapt our Earth Day tools to celebrate our planet and your community any time of year.
Practice Greenhealth has developed many ideas, including creative activities from our member organizations, to inspire and guide you on how best to use Earth Day and other recognition days as communication opportunities about the importance of sustainability, health, and wellness.
