About the organisers

Health Care Without Harm Europe is the European chapter of a global non-profit coalition of hospitals, healthcare systems, healthcare professionals, local authorities, research/academic institutions and environmental and health organisations.

HCWH Europe currently has 84 members in 26 countries of the WHO European Region and in 17 Member States of the European Union. It brings the voice of healthcare professionals to the European policy debate about key issues - chemicals, climate change and health, green building, sustainable procurement, pharmaceuticals, sustainable food and waste management.


Radboud university medical center is a leading academic centre for patient care, education, and research, whose mission is ‘to have a significant impact on healthcare’. The medical centre’s activities help to improve healthcare and consequently the health of individuals and of society. Radboud believes this can be achieved by providing excellent quality, participatory and personalised healthcare, operational excellence, and by working together in sustainable networks.


About Nijmegen

Nijmegen has been awarded the title of European Green Capital for 2018, and is the first Dutch city to hold this title, with Copenhagen, Bristol, Ljubljana, Essen and several others before them. 

The European Green Capital Award is an initiative of the European Commission, which recognises and rewards local efforts to improve the environment, the economy and the quality of life in cities. The title is awarded every year to a European city that leads the way in sustainability, thus serving as a source of inspiration for other cities. The winner then carries the title of European Green Capital for one year.

Holding CleanMed Europe 2018 in Nijmegen provides an exceptional opportunity to network and exchange ideas on sustainable healthcare in a city that is focussed on sustainability.  Nijmegen, the oldest city in the Netherlands, is now more than ever a city of the future and a leader of a major green movement: the city is committed to sustainability and aims to become energy neutral by 2045 and ‘climate proof’ by 2050.
