EcoMedics – Extreme Sustainability

Nathan Hudson-Peacock

COVID-19 has shocked us all to the core. However, lurking in the shadows of COVID-19, a potentially, even more, vast, more long-lasting, and more silent pandemic is also well underway: climate change.

At Virtual WEM Expo 2020, Nathan gave a talk on Sustainability at the Extremes that highlighted the environmental challenges of expedition medicine and suggested some of the steps we can all take to reduce our impact on the environment – not just on an expedition, but also in our home lives. Following the success of this talk, a number of conference delegates got in touch with Nathan to express an interest in this area, and this led to the birth of the group Eco Medics – a collaborative of healthcare professionals from around the world, all passionate about reducing the impact of healthcare systems on the environment.

Eco Medics has gone from strength to strength, inspiring change in medical schools, NHS trusts and further afield to tackle the climate health emergency. In this exciting talk, Nathan will discuss the successes and challenges faced by Eco Medics, will highlight some of the work being done by NHS trusts to improve their sustainability, and will demonstrate how you can get involved to make a difference.

Edinburgh, Scotland’s capital city is uniquely inspirational, not only for its fabled loveliness, but also for its associations – past and present – with innovation, creativity, discovery and progress.

It was here chloroform was first used as an anaesthetic and the founder of penicillin was born. Dolly the sheep was cloned at the University of Edinburgh’s Roslin Institute. The first ‘bionic’ hand – a powered prosthetic with articulating fingers – was developed by a spin-out company from the city’s Princess Margaret Rose Hospital, and the fastest-selling video game of all time – Grand Theft Auto V, by Rockstar North was developed!

Edinburgh has great transport connections too; home to Scotland’s busiest airport which serves 188 destinations worldwide, rail links which run all over the UK, easy access from Scotland’s motorway network and public transport in the city itself is simple with a plentiful supply of buses, trams and taxis.

There’s plenty to do after dark with lots of unique venues to experience a full flavour of Scotland’s culture. We have partnered with Convention Edinburgh and all of our Extreme Medicine delegates will receive the Edinburgh Rewards Card with their conference badge, opening a door to special offers from a selection of bars, restaurants, shops and tour operators.

Our conference venue, Dynamic Earth is a 5 star visitor experience, inviting guests to take a journey through time to witness the story of planet Earth. Dynamic Earth offers synergy within a global health context which match our own sustainable, community minded focus.
