Why the climate emergency is also a health emergency

****** This event took place on 14/4/21. You can watch the recording here ******

Join us and special guest Fiona Armstrong from the Climate and Health Alliance CAHA for a wide ranging discussion on how the climate crisis poses a threat to our health - from poor air quality to changes in the transmission of infectious diseases, food and water insecurity and heat stress. Fiona will also explore how we can be prepared and build resilience.

Fiona is the Founder and Executive Director of CAHA - Australia's peak body on climate change and health. She is an expert in climate change and health policy, advocacy, and communications. Fiona is the lead author of many of CAHA’s reports and the architect of a world-leading policy roadmap, the Framework for a National Strategy on Climate, Health and Well-being for Australia. She is also a co-founder and director of CLIMARTE, an organisation that harnesses the creative power of the arts to inform, engage and inspire action on climate change.

This free event is proudly supported by the Darebin City Council's Community Grants Program.
