Integrating Planetary Health and sustainability in education

In education too, we are working on sustainability. Planetary health and sustainability are thus becoming an increasingly integral part of our healthcare, research, and education. Read more about this in the chapter Our students .

Healthcare professionals more aware through ‘The green OR’ learning line

In 2023 we launched the 'Green OR' learning line to make new healthcare professionals aware of sustainability and our work in this regard at UMC Utrecht. Over two days, anesthetists in training get an understanding of sustainability in our OR complex, with a focus on air treatment, circularity, and medication. Participants also discuss ways in which we can make our own OR complex more sustainable. This learning line is also available via the countrywide Green OR network.
