Workshop Focus

The Sydney North Health Network is the first primary health network in Australia to develop a Climate & Health Strategy.

This workshop covered the following:

  • Learn about climate-health risks in our region, ‘carbon hotspots’ in primary care, and case studies of climate action projects.
  • Suggest priority actions and contribute to the implementation plan for our Strategy.
  • Connect with like-minded colleagues and community members.

Speakers:
