Our Goals & Vision

Advocate Locally and Statewide

Advocate for pollution reduction and low-carbon strategies. We will call for solutions that reduce the local health impacts of fossil fuels; solutions that foster clean energy and social justice; and solutions that save lives and money.

Engage and Inform

Inform our peers, policymakers, and patients about the health risks from climate change, and the health benefits of climate action. We will serve as messengers about the steps we can take to limit climate impacts and prevent the problem from worsening.

Mitigate

We will lead by example and reduce the carbon footprint of our own institutions. We will strive to make our hospitals greener and healthier by reducing waste, investing in energy efficiency and clean energy while promoting sustainable transport and resource consumption.

Adapt

We will strive to make our health systems more resilient and capable of withstanding and responding to the human toll of natural disasters and the shifting burden of disease.

Provide Leadership

As representatives of our organizations, we will drive the agenda for climate and health, promoting this Call to Action throughout Florida.

Pledge

We establish Florida Clinicians for Climate Action and pledge to work with like-minded organizations to advocate to preserve and improve the health of all Floridians who are impacted by climate change, especially vulnerable populations and communities.
