AMEE 2020 Update: Sustainable healthcare Education theme
We had an interesting time recently reviewing the submissions in the SHE theme for Glasgow. There is clearly very different views on what 'sustainability' means. In our minds, we were clear, accepting that sustainability involved the triple bottom line of people (social), planet (environmental) and purse (cost-effectiveness).

These three concepts are included the 2030 Sustainable Development Goals in that there can be no progress in terms of gender equity or education, for instance, without taking into the consideration our natural resources so that future generations also have access.

If you are attending the AMEE Conference and want to know how we are training and educating the current and future generations of health professionals to adapt to a changing planet but to also mitigate by reducing their personal and professional environmental footprints, the SHE theme is a must.
