The 2019 theme is Nurses: A Voice to Lead – Health for All. It was developed by the International Council of Nurses (ICN). According to ICN, A Voice to Lead reflects the fact that “every nurse has a story and every story has the potential to improve the health system and enable individuals and communities to achieve their highest attainable standard of health.

“National Nursing Week is a great opportunity to recognize the leadership role of all regulated nurses in Canada”: read a statement from CNA president Claire Betker.

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!

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.

World Water Day - March 22 22 Mar, 2019 | Posted by: cnhe

20190322-wwd-generiq-cmjn_en_2017_square.jpg

The theme for World Water Day 2019 is ‘Leaving no one behind’.

This is an adaptation of the central promise of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development: as sustainable development progresses, everyone must benefit.

Sustainable Development Goal 6 (SDG 6) aims to ensure availability and sustainable management of water for all by 2030. By definition, this means leaving no one behind.

Today, billions of people are still living without safe water – their households, schools, workplaces, farms and factories struggling to survive and thrive.
Marginalized groups – women, children, refugees, indigenous peoples, disabled people and many others – are often overlooked, and sometimes face discrimination, as they try to access and manage the safe water they need.

Whoever you are, wherever you are, water is your human right. Access to water underpins public health and is therefore critical to sustainable development and a stable and prosperous world. We cannot move forward as a global society while so many people are living without safe water.

In 2010, the UN recognized “the right to safe and clean drinking water and sanitation as a human right that is essential for the full enjoyment of life and all human rights.”

The human right to water entitles everyone, without discrimination, to sufficient, safe, acceptable, physically accessible and affordable water for personal and domestic use; which includes water for drinking, personal sanitation, washing of clothes, food preparation, and personal and household hygiene.

To ‘leave no one behind’, we must focus our efforts towards including people who have been marginalized or ignored. Water services must meet the needs of marginalized groups and their voices must be heard in decision-making processes. Regulatory and legal frameworks must recognise the right to water for all people, and sufficient funding must be fairly and effectively targeted at those who need it most.
