1440 Multiversity reopened in April 2021 with the intention of creating hope for living well.
We are currently accepting private events, gatherings and individual reservations for weekend Rest & Renewal stay packages. Every booking directly supports local advocacy programs such as Healing Our Healthcare Heroes and feeds families in Santa Cruz County through our philanthropic community building efforts.
We hold space for the hearts and lives impacted in so many ways this last year and look forward to embracing the public's desire to safely reconnect and gather in person with intention to co-create experiences that matter. Please accept our sincere gratitude for your continued support in helping us inspire and enrich the world. Special thanks to our committed and dedicated staff for their grace, resilience and commitment to deep hospitality and expression of love to others.
The climate crisis is impacting health, and health care professionals have a pivotal role as advocates for change. The climate crisis must be mitigated by vast reductions in carbon use, including by the medical industry, which is responsible for 8% of global green house gas emissions. Physicians will share how they have promoted advocacy, as well as effective ways of messaging, and how leaders serve as trusted sources of information, educators for policymakers and local institutions, and change agents in their own institutional or governments policies. Healthcare professionals and others can help move the public and leaders from distress into active roles that will have reverberating impacts on our societal change. This session will end with a meditation.
This webinar is co-sponsored by the UCSF Center for Climate, Health and Equity and the UCSF Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences Climate Crisis and Mental Health Task Force. A workshop on advocacy training will be announced during this session.
