A report by the Lancet Commission has highlighted that curbing climate change could be the biggest global health opportunity of the 21st century. Written by experts from around the world, the landmark report warns that the effects of Climate Change are being felt today, and pose a potentially catastrophic risk to human health which has been underestimated. The technologies and finance required to address the problem can be made available, but the political will to connect them is lacking.

A new briefing note outlines evidence on the role of the Public Forest Estate managed by the Forestry Commission in helping to tackle physical inactivity. It draws on research into the health benefits of forests but also greenspace and green infrastructure in which trees are often an important or key component. It argues that the Public Forest Estate in England is extremely versatile and has the potential to contribute to cost effective solutions for the health sector targeted at preventing ill health and also in recovery and treatment programmes.

The Environmental Audit Committee has released a report which follows up on its 2011 report on Air Quality. Since then further scientific evidence has emerged on the link between air quality and health. The European Commission has started proceedings against the UK for failure to meet pollution limits on Nitrogen Oxides.

At Plymouth University, the Sustainability, Society and Health Research Group have introduced scenarios to teach nurses and healthcare students about climate change and sustainability. For example nursing and design students work together to tackle issues of sustainability in the health sector. They participate in interdisciplinary, sustainability scenario sessions with the design students observing their nursing counterparts as they conduct clinical procedures as part of their skills training.
