Education for Sustainability
Keynote: Education for Sustainability
2023’s climate extremes are making ever more apparent the interconnectedness of human health and planetary health. Yet as news continues of unprecedented weather events, heatwaves, droughts and other environmental concerns, our Australian health care remains high carbon care. Many of us in health care and health education can also remain unsure of what, if anything, we can do for greater sustainability.
In this keynote, A/Prof Forbes McGain, Associate Dean Healthcare Sustainability, MDHS, will share examples of initiatives within health care and health education that are making real differences right now. Never one for doom and gloom or the too-hard basket, Forbes will invite us all to notice opportunities, to build connections, and to act for a more sustainable future.
Panel: Education for Sustainability
In this panel, we will hear staff and student perspectives on strengthening planetary health and environmental sustainability in teaching and learning. Healthcare professionals not only need to be prepared to address the emerging care burden caused by climate change but also to engage in and lead positive practices that reduce the environmental harm of our professions. Educators of all students preparing for professional practice have a role in supporting this.
Through the panel, we will engage with voices of well-established leaders in education for sustainability, and also voices of emergent journeys – of colleagues and students who have noticed issues, and from this noticing, are now leading new collaborations and actions. The panel will invite reflection on what we may all do in our own contexts, but the visions to be explored will be less about individuals, but of further opportunities to connect, to learn from each other, and to draw upon shared expertise so we can all strengthen our approaches to this planetary scale challenge.
