Newsletter: Launch of the Clean Air Hospital Framework

It's been a busy few months at Global Action Plan, and we wanted to share the latest updates with you on how we're working to connect what's good for us, and good for the planet.

A year ago, Great Ormond Street Hospital asked Global Action Plan the question: “What would a Clean Air Hospital look like? How would it operate, what training would it offer to staff and what advice would it give to patients?” There was no guidebook, so we agreed to put our heads together and work out the answers.


We proudly launched that framework at Great Ormond Street Hospital this morning. This is a free resource for hospitals throughout the NHS to access and use to tackle air pollution. Senior Partner Chris Large writes about the process of creating the framework and the great opportunity for action that it represents for hospitals all over the country.

Wellbeing and consumerism

Research tells us that the version of success we are sold by advertisers and social media has a negative impact on both us and the planet. Through our projects, we’re tackling the harmful impacts of materialism and providing young people with an inspiring vision of what happier, healthier, sustainable lifestyles look like.

Our Youth Panel lead a plastic-free revolution

Last month the Global Action Plan Youth Panel launched their first campaign, #LongLiveTheLunchbox. Aimed at connecting conscious consumers and like-minded businesses, it highlights the unnecessary and excessive use of single-use plastic in take-away lunches.


The campaign asks individuals to take their own containers to their favourite lunch spots and calls on progressive businesses to shout about accepting containers by proudly displaying a pink campaign sticker in their window. 


To date, the campaign has engaged over 100 businesses, collaborated with food waste app Too Good To Go and seen wide-ranging interest from sustainability press and local councils to ethical influencers.
