Description: Critical coverage of climate change, ecosystem collapse and pollution are lacking in institutional healthcare education. Processes of violent exclusion, both planetary degradation and hierarchical education, have the capacity to alienate and marginalise.
Running adjacent to the 26th United Nations Climate Change Conference (COP), this online series seeks to address these shortcomings. By bringing students into the conversation and drawing on perspectives from a range of guest speakers, Beyond COP offers a fresh and radical approach to help empower healthcare students in realising their own moral voice.
Through 4 short online discussions, participants are given the space to start generating the tools necessary to imagine and create transformative change within healthcare training. Based in collaboration and dialogue, the series explores the responsibility of healthcare to the development of its future clinicians as a community. Whilst the series emerges out of a focus on the relationship between planetary and human health, it also draws on an appreciation of how the inherited inequities and instability of our global health system remains rooted in the ongoing impact of colonialism.
