“Climate is the biggest threat of the 21st century and I feel we all need to be aware of the personal way this affects us as urban Canadians,” says Dr. Samantha Green of the Canadian Association of Physicians for the Environment (CAPE). “With this understanding and knowledge, we individuals can make the right decisions about how to take action on behalf of ourselves and all life on this planet.”
Dr. Samantha Green is a family physician at St. Michael’s Hospital, and is no stranger to activist and advocacy work. She worked with three other doctors in 2017 to found Toronto’s Doctors for Safe Cycling. She also works weekly in a clinic providing primary medical care to people who are homeless, experiencing addiction, or involved in the criminal justice system, teaches a graduate course called “The Social, Political, and Scientific Aspects of Primary Care,” and is past chair of Health Providers Against Poverty. Before joining the Board of Directors of the Canadian Association of Physicians for the Environment, Dr. Green served on the Board of Directors of the Sierra Club of Canada. As well, she is mom to a one-year child — so she has a very clear, personal motivation to mitigate the escalating climate crisis.
