NewsGP: Medical group supports School Strike 4 Climate 


DEA applauds the children's event, due to take place on 15 March, which will see students skip school  to demand strong action on climate change. GP and DEA's Honorary Secretary Dr Richard Yin describes climate change as the ‘biggest risk to public health in human history’.  He told NewsGP that it is inspiring to see the next generation of young people take control of their future, as the seriousness of the current situation demands that health advocates take action on climate change ‘for the sake of our children’.

DEA has been concerned with the impacts of climate change on children, which resulted in a 2015 report, No Time For Games. This report was followed with a 2018 summary report update.

We are now running a campaign urging health professionals and the wider public to Take the Pledge to protect children's health in a changing climate.
