Association for Dental Education in Europe
Learning together to improve oral health and quality of life
EDSA members have advocated the need for inclusion of sustainable and green practices within the undergraduate curriculum for many years. ADEE responded to this challenge with the Association’s Special Interest Group in sustainability currently finalising an update to the Graduating European Dentist that will embed and further enable sustainable education and clinical practice for oral health professionals of the future. It is now the appropriate time to recognise leaders in the field of environmental and sustainable practices within our membership and acknowledge their contribution and best practice in an appropriate manner.
As the world’s largest provider of health care solutions to office-based dental and medical practitioners, Henry Schein recognises that with the Company’s global environmental footprint and unique position within an ecosystem of relationships with suppliers, business partners, and customers, the Company can be a driving force for sustainability.
Here we want to hear about your sustainable and green campus initiative. Examples might include waste reduction and segregation initiative, removal of single use product, energy conservation and alternative methods of supply, carbon footprint reduction initiatives, and many more.
In this category, we want to hear how you have integrated the concept of sustainability within the undergraduate and where relevant the post graduate curriculum for oral health professionals.
This category is an opportunity to highlight your work on ‘green’procurement, repair and reuse of equipment, the replacement of product and services with sustainably sourced alternatives.
