Students have been a critical part of the Environmental Physiotherapy Association since day one. The unquestionable passion of physiotherapy students wishing to learn how they can contribute to doing something positive for their environment as part of the profession they have embarked to learn was a central motor behind the ongoing EPT Agenda and its efforts to implement environmental physiotherapy into physiotherapy curricula around the world. Physiotherapy students are also driving the increasing engagement in research at the intersections of physiotherapy and the environment (see here, here, and here). And they are driving the implementation of environmental perspectives into physiotherapy practice.
With all this already going on, we felt it was past time to create a dedicated space for students interested in environmental physiotherapy, a space that is waiting to be defined, changed, and adapted, as we, physiotherapy students and recent graduates think it should. So if you are a physiotherapy student or recent graduate, and if you would like to connect with other peers from around the world who share your passion for environmental physiotherapy, or if you maybe have some projects in mind that we should engage in, please get in touch via Instagram, or the email or QR code in the image below.
We can’t wait to hear from you soon!

Growing up on a farm in a small village in Western Norway, nature has always been a big part of my life. Environmental physiotherapy is the perfect combination of two of my biggest passions. You can read my first #EnviroPT publication in the Norwegian Physiotherapy Journal here.
