The title of this brief editorial may sound like the title of a disaster movie coming to a cinema near you. But it is a call to arms - a plea to all nurses and midwives to join a global movement to avert a disaster on a global scale before it is too late. The International Journal of Nursing Studies was amongst a group of journals approached to contribute to an editorial on the looming environmental crisis (Atwoli et al., 2021). This editorial is being published by many journals, representing a range of healthcare disciplines, in advance of the 76th session of the United Nations General Assembly meeting which starts on 14 September 2021 and important United Nations’ summits on biodiversity and climate change in October and November.
