Join us for the UK preview of the NurSusTOOLKIT, an innovative approach to education for sustainable development with a specific focus on nursing and midwifery. 

The NurSusTOOLKIT has been developed with partners in Spain, Germany and The Netherlands, using an evidence-based approach to provide core competencies for sustainability literacy in nursing and midwifery that support the European agenda on climate change.
