How can we keep our cool?

How will rising temperatures effect our physical and emotional health? How can we build resilience?

Join us and an expert panel to explore the physical and emotional effects of the climate emergency on our wellbeing.  Dr Liz Hanna will explain why it is so important for us to pay attention to the risk of ‘deadly heat’ resulting from hotter days and warmer nights. Carol Ride will talk about the toll the crisis is taking on our emotional health and how we can act to build resilience and better support ourselves and those around us.

Dr Liz Hanna is an Honorary Senior Fellow at the Australian National University Climate Change Institute and Chair of the Environmental Health Working Group of the World Federation of Public Health Associations. Her primary research interest spans all climate impacts on human health, adaptation options and strategies to boost community resilience and health sector preparedness, with a specific focus on heat exposures and disasters.

Carol Ride is the Acting Executive Director of Psychology for a Safe Climate, a group of psychologists, psychiatrists and counsellors offering emotional support to those working on the climate crisis.

This free event is part of the 2021 National Sustainable Living Festival and proudly supported by the Darebin City Council's Community Grants Program.
