Event description

This forum is proudly co-hosted by the Climate and Health Alliance (CAHA), the Global Green and Healthy Hospitals Network (GGHH Pacific) and the Hunter New England Local Health District (HNE Health).

When and where

The Forum will take place on Friday 7 October in-person on Awabakal country, at the Hunter Medical Research Institute, and online.

Who should come

Anyone interested in improving the environmental footprint of healthcare and aged care, and fostering a healthy future for people and the planet. The forum will provide opportunities for connection, knowledge sharing, learning and upskilling, for both in-person and online attendees.

About the program

The overarching theme of the Forum is ‘Driving systems change for sustainable healthcare'. Together, we'll examine these three questions:

  • Where are we at? Gathering the evidence
  • What can we do? Sustainable healthcare and circular economy solutions in practice
  • What is the big picture? Policy for sustainable healthcare

A diverse line-up of speakers, from healthcare, government, industry partners, academia and beyond, will share their expertise on current research, policy, industry innovations and practical examples of sustainable healthcare in action.

The Forum program is not yet released. You can find more information on the Forum website, and sign up to our Sustainable Healthcare newsletter to be notified of updates.
