Inform HP educators of AMEE's support for planetary health and sustainable healthcare education and how to use the Consensus Statement to integrate relevant content in the curriculum. Practical examples will be provided.

Format and Interactivity:
Three 'live' presenters (Trevor, Michelle and Kathleen) and one video (Caroline). Participants will be encouraged to identify challenges and strategies for implementing recommendations in the Consensus Statement within their context, which will be summarised and shared at the end. Participants will also be invited to join a network of educators for planetary health and sustainable healthcare.

Anticipated Outcomes:
Discussion about how the CS can guide the integration planetary health and sustainable healthcare into health professions curricula, with practical examples. Networking and collaboration opportunities as well as raising awareness of how sustainable healthcare (or lack of) affects health. Participants will have:
