We are committed to maintaining a user-lead platform for you to connect, learn and collaborate with others working toward environmentally sustainable health systems across Canada.
After surveying members of our current community platform, we are relaunching as a LinkedIn Group. We want to focus on growing a vibrant space on a platform where many of you already are, with all the functionality that LinkedIn offers. Join the new community here to connect with a community of like-minded people and hear from them and from us all in one easy place.
Share your feedback on the quality and relevance of the resources, professional development courses, and networking opportunities we are creating. This survey should take approximately 4 minutes to complete.
CASCADES is a multi-year capacity-building initiative to address healthcare’s contribution to the climate crisis led by the Centre for Sustainable Health Systems, in partnership with the Healthy Populations Institute at Dalhousie University, the Planetary Healthcare Lab at the University of British Columbia, and the Canadian Coalition for Green Health Care.
