The Canadian Coalition of Green Health Care is collaborating with the Canadian Association of Nurses for the Environment (CANE) and University of Alberta graduate student, Joanna Law, to create a national picture of Green Teams. The goal of this project is to develop an interactive map that will display Green Team location and information from across the country. Its aim is to inform and inspire those looking to start a Green Team and provide networking opportunities for existing Green Teams.
We are looking for your help in realizing this project. If you have a Green Team and would like to be included in this project, we kindly request your participation in any of the following ways:
- Provide us with a summary of your Green Team activities and future direction.
- Provide us with contact information that could be posted on the map.
- Provide us with information about a specific success, difficulty, or experience in being part of a Green Team. This could take the form of a short written piece, video vignette, email interview, or video interview.
Please contact our project lead, Joanna Law, if you are able to participate to any degree in this project or have any questions or concerns. Joanna can be reached by email at email@example.com
About Joanna Law
Joanna is a registered nurse with a background in critical care and addictions and mental health. It was during her shifts that she started to notice the environmental implications of health care activities. This inspired her to seek further education in how nurses and other health care workers can help create sustainable changes. She is currently in her first year of graduate studies with the Faculty of Nursing at the University of Alberta. Her nursing experience is complemented by a Bachelor of Arts in sociology from the University of Alberta and eight years of experience as a board member for a community-based non-profit.
