Public Health England introduces One Small Step

Public Health England introduces One Small Step

Following requests from staff in public health and health care systems, Public Health England has devised a single web-page to give pointers on actions that individuals could take to reduce climate change and to protect the environment.

This web-page is now live on the NHS Sustainability Day web-site.  It is called One Small Step, not because only one action is suggested but because all difficult challenges are best tackled one step at a time.  The page includes an invitation to staff to commit to one or more of the actions proposed.

We feel this is particularly timely given the current commitment to tackling climate change and the need for action at local as well as national level.

We hope to have feedback on site visits and pledges made by the next health Sustainability Day on 24 March 2016.
