March 26th 2015 , NHS Sustainability day news page
(WFF does that mean ? have their workings been unsustainable for the last 60 years until they thought this slogan up ? Every org should always be thinking how to improve to stay alive, but bet this campaign doesn't allow you to consider helping the NHS to sustain itself by introducing charging for doctors appointments etc.)
... "one day in a sustained campaign, yet it provides a focus for organisations to participate on that day in initiating or continuing progress on achieving better sustainability practice."
- "The campaign of regional road-shows gives health-workers across the country the chance to participate in networking, learning about best practice and innovative ideas. The national awards scheme recognises and publicises this achievement. "

Next roadshow
