You're invited to join our second annual #BDASustainableSeptember, a month of activities designed to support our members embed environmental sustainability in dietetics.
We'll be giving you details on why food (and dietitians) are so important in combating the climate crisis, how you can embed environmental sustainability into your practice, sharing member success stories and considering what we can all do next.
Keep up with the latest updates by following #BDASustainableSeptember on social media, and please use the hashtag to let us know what you’re doing to be sustainable this month - or share what you're doing using our online form.
