Student Climate Strikes in September

On 20th - 27th September, children and young people will be taking to the streets to call for climate action in the next escalation of the Student Climate Strikes campaign -- and Medact is working on ways to encourage and facilitate health workers to show their support.

We’re organizing a healthcare presence at the student marches on 20th September and also planning some alternative actions for those who cannot attend due to work commitments to show their support during break times.

Westbank of Palestine, 3rd – 31st of August, 2019

The Refugee Camp Project

The Palestinian Refugee Camp Project, a four week summer program made possible by the generous donation from International Physicians for the Prevention of Nuclear War, brings together medical students from around the world to experience life and healthcare in the West Bank. The first week of the program takes place in the university city of Abu Dis. Students learn about the history and politics of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict through university guest lectures, private presentations at governmental and non-governmental organizations and a diversity of museum tours. During the three remaining program weeks, in Bethlehem, students participate in medical internships of their choice, at one or multiple clinics or hospitals that serve the refugee camp populations. Throughout the project, participants will have a chance to experience Palestinian culture and hospitality and learn from student perspectives on the conflict. Each year, ReCaP is coordinated by former participants of the project in collaboration with student coordinators in Palestine.

Application deadline: April 21st, 2019 at 23:59 pm GMT.

Nuclear Security in Europe after the collapse of the INF Treaty

Tensions are growing among states possessing nuclear weapons and the collapse of the Intermediate-range Nuclear Forces (INF) Treaty brings Europe closer to the brink of another dangerous Cold War. Meanwhile, the UN Treaty on the Prohibition of Nuclear Weapons (TPNW) gains traction and opens new avenues for urgently needed common campaigns and actions.

All are welcome to discuss this challenging situation and the way forward to a nuclear-weapons-free Europe.
