I, as a physician (nurse/other health professional category), solemnly pledge to work to protect the health of people, their communities, and the planet.
I pledge to maintain the utmost respect for human life and the diversity of life on Earth, and for the natural systems which support all life
I pledge to advocate for equity and justice by actively addressing environmental, social and structural determinants of health, envisioning a transition to a society that places the wellbeing of all persons, in balance with nature, at its heart.
I pledge to address the climate and ecological crisis in my actions at home, in my community, and in my profession, to protect the planet and all of its life forms for current and future generations.
