With consultations on the National Health and Climate Strategy closing soon (24 July), the recent Doctors for the Environment Australia conference was perfectly timed for sharing experiences and knowledge.
Afterwards, the DEA summed up the event thus:
“To survive and thrive, deep systemic and societal change is required; our transition to a greener future should be equitable and ethical.
At iDEA23 we explored the intersection of environmental advocacy across a range of spheres including healthcare, economics, and law.
Although the situation is dire, we showcased proven strategies and mobilised hope for the future in a way that leaves us connected to our community and paves the way for us to act!
This highly anticipated weekend conference was held at the beautiful University of Queensland St. Lucia Campus in Mianjin/Brisbane and online.
We heard from Australian and international speakers who shared practical knowledge from their fields of expertise to help us adapt to the inevitable challenges of climate change while cultivating hope for the wellbeing of our planet and its people.”
With thanks to the DEA team for comprehensive tweeting, as summarised below. Also check #iDEA23.
