Re-thinking Sustainable Health in Aotearoa

A green, equitable and resilient post-COVID pathway for health and healthcare

This webinar series replaces the Sustainable Healthcare and Climate Health Conference Aotearoa which was planned for June 2020 and acts as a stepping stone to the conference in 2021.

The programme content covers both climate change mitigation and adaptation in relation to health and ranges from research and innovation to policy and operational implementation. There is a strong focus on equity and how the right post-COVID response can bring wide co-benefits to health, health equity and well-being.
