CANE/AIIE “Tell a Colleague” Campaign27 Apr, 2019 | Posted by: cnhe


It is membership renewal time again! This year, we would like to ask that each of our valued members engage at least ONE colleague in a discussion related to environmental health as it relates to the nursing profession – May we suggest the issue of climate change?

CANE members will likely be aware that according to the Lancet and its Climate Commission, “Climate change is the biggest global health threat of the 21st century”(1). What is more, the Lancet adds, “Tackling climate change could be the greatest global health opportunity of the 21st century”(2).

CANE, the national voice of nurses for the environment, invites you to help us engage with nursing professionals who have not previously considered the connection between the environment and human health. Now is a perfect time to “Tell a Colleague” about the far-reaching effects of climate change on human health and we welcome new members to join us in our work to address this important issue! New members are always welcome!







Celebrate Earth Day 2019!!22 Apr, 2019 | Posted by: cnhe


CANE Supports the UN International Mother Earth Day and Canadian Earth Day - The Earth Day 2019 Campaign is Protect Our Species. .

Education is the foundation for progress. We need to build a global citizenry fluent in the concepts of climate change and aware of its unprecedented threat to our planet. We need to empower everyone with the knowledge to inspire action in defense of environmental protection.

Protect Our Species is the engine not only for creating green voters and advancing environmental and species protection laws and policies but also for accelerating green technologies and tredding softly on the earth.

This Earth Day, gather with your community for a Protect Our Species Teach-In or another project focused on education. We are launching Earth Day and Teach-In toolkits that will lay out the steps for holding a successful event. Register your event with us and we will support you with promotion and advice.
