Health and Environment Alliance is looking for a Senior Policy and Advocacy Officer, Health and Climate

Climate change is the greatest health threat of the 21st century, and its impacts are increasingly being felt in Europe.

Given the urgency to act, the health and medical sector has been calling for swift, decisive climate mitigation and adaptation measures to prevent people’s suffering and reduce health cost.

With the start of the new EU policy cycle, HEAL aims to strengthen health engagement on climate at the EU, national and urban levels, to up the ambition of the EU’s climate policies at home and internationally.

Are you HEAL’s new Senior Policy and Advocacy Officer for Health and Climate?

You can help expand health and medical engagement, communicate the latest science on health and climate to decision-makers, and advocate for policies which place health at the centre of climate action.
