Health workers demand WHO action on climate change


Around 200 health professionals demonstrated outside the offices of the World Health Organization in Geneva on Saturday demanding climate change be listed as a global health emergency.

 A delegation from the Swiss section of ‘Doctors for Extinction Rebellion’ handed over a letter signed by over a thousand care workers calling for the WHO to recognise climate change is putting people at risk of death and health authorities around the world need to act. 

The WHO issued a statement saying there is ‘no vaccine against climate change and we need to act now before it’s too late.’
