Planetary Health: A step into the future

Planetary health recognises that human health and the health of our planet are inextricably linked. Climate change is the single biggest global challenge humanity is facing, and the COVID-19 pandemic has further highlighted the health inequities in our world. Urgent action and attention is required to create societies focused on wellbeing and sustainability without breaching ecological limits.

Join Chief Medical Officer A/Prof Vicki Ashton, Sustainable Development Planner Dr Kendra Wasiluk and Sustainability Coordinator Shane French to take a closer look at what Monash is doing to respond to climate change and foster thriving communities for a healthier future.

How our dietary choices can affect planetary health

We can no longer deny that climate change is changing our world - and that includes food production and distribution. What we choose to eat has profound effects not only on our own health but also on the health of our fellow citizens and that of the planet itself. Changes are essential – and possible. Sadly, some with short-term interests may sabotage many of the changes required.

Join Dr Rosemary Stanton OAM to look at the dietary changes needed, the practicalities of change and the need to tackle those who oppose change.
