Challenges and reservations

While the urgent need for integrating environmental and sustainability perspectives into physiotherapy is apparent, we understand that we are likely to encounter reservations and challenges along the way. We consider it critical to acknowledge and address these challenges and reservations from the outset of this endeavour, because they represent genuine issues and struggles for physiotherapy educators and physiotherapy education institutions seeking to change their curricula, or even introduce new content. At the same time, we also think that engaging with these challenges, for example also in collaboration with students can, in itself, be an incredibly fruitful approach to environmental physiotherapy education and achieving the aim of the EPT Agenda 2023. In this way, challenges and reservations can provide relevant content, highlight existing expertise in the field, provide inspiration and foster innovation directed at further resolving identified issues.
