These were that:
- Health problems outlast political crises
- The heat is on…especially in cities
- “Think Global: Act Local” is not just a bumper sticker
- Learn from Indigenous wisdom about health and the environment
- What we measure (and how we measure it) matters
- Community engagement is key to successful health promotion research and practice.

Themed session: Policy, Power & Politics
Professor Fran Baum: Governing for Health and Equity: Essential for our Health and Survival
The slide above says:
Qualities health promoters will need
- Understanding of what creates healthy environments, societies, communities and people
- Regulation is often good for our health
- Collaborative: beyond the silos
- Imaginative: doing things differently
- Inclusive: welcome dissent, encourage civil society opposition voices and listen to them
- Hopeful: see the light despite the darkness
- Courageous: brave enough to stand up to powerful, vested interests
- Promote health not profit
- Kindness and caring in policy formulation and implementation (eg welcoming asylum seekers, not off shore detention, Uluru Statement not Northern Territory Intervention).
