More than 230 medical journals have called for worldwide action against global warming and for nature restoration. They call on health professionals to actively contribute to increasing support for the radical measures necessary to maintain the health and well-being of life on our planet. This call concerns not only making one's own living and working environment greener, but above all the use of medical knowledge, expertise and authority for measures that matter worldwide. This starts with concrete advice to patients to prevent damage from climate change at an individual level.

After all, medical doctors have historically been in a position to speak out about these threats and to remind political leaders of their responsibility.Health professionals can lead by example by realizing greener and more sustainable care themselves.
