GreenMed is a project aimed at raising awareness and educating medical students of climate change issues. Moreover, we aim to cultivate environmentally conscious behavior in the medical students today so that they can become positive role models as clinicians, and take these positive behaviors into hospitals/clinics.
The long-term objectives of the project are:
- Raising awareness about environmental health issues among the UQ community
- To engage students in environmental health issues through volunteering and collaborations with local organizations including the DEA (Doctors for the Environment Australia.
