Ecological sustainability and ecoliteracy development are goals of many Canadian organizations and professionals, including nurses. Currently, many ecological issues demand societal attention, such as climate change, food safety, unsustainable development, species extinction and exposure to toxic contaminants and pollutants. Critical issues that influence the health of our natural environment impact all of the social determinants of human health in many ways.

An Associate group of the Canadian Nurses Association, the Canadian Nurses for Health and the Environment - Infirmieres et Infirmiers pour la Sante et l'Environnement (CNHE/IISE), represents Registered Nurses dedicated to the improvement of environmental health across all domains of nursing practice, policy, research and education.

The CNHE/IISE works to achieve the following objectives:

- Facilitate knowledge sharing and transfer based on environmental health principles and nursing best practices
- Support evidence-based environmental health practice
- Influence policy development and legislation to support environmental nursing practice
- Promote educational and research opportunities for nurses.

To that end, the CNHE/IISE is designing environmental competencies and curriculum to share with nurses and educators. CNHE/IISE has initiated this work to encourage engagement and explore ways that nursing can collaborate with others to support environmental health. Join us for webinar to learn about the innovative technological tools being developed by CNHE for teaching environmental health and developing ecoliteracy in nursing education and practice.
