Global climate wake-up call

Yesterday was the Global Climate Wake Up Call, a global day of action organised by Avaaz and Tck Tck Tck, which sought to convey to political leaders that people all over the world want a fair, ambitious, and binding agreement on climate change at Copenhagen in December this year.

As part of this global day of action, the Green Health Group organised an event in which 45 people gathered to create a sign saying ‘climate change is bad news for health’ on a busy street in front of the University of Melbourne. The group included 20 medical students concerned about the health impacts of climate change, as well as students and staff from various other disciplines and faculties.
