Better Futures Australia Climate and Health Roundtable

Better Futures Australia Climate and Health Roundtable

Dr Magdalena Simonis, AFMW President has been invited to join the The Climate and Health Alliance, Doctors for the Environment Australia, Australasian College for Emergency Medicine, Australian Healthcare and Hospitals Association, and New South Wales Nurses and Midwives’ Association — as the Better Futures Australia Health Sector Working Group. 


The online Roundtable is an invitation-only event with senior leaders from health and medical organisations professional and industrial associations, healthcare service providers, clinicians, academics and researchers
The Climate and Health Roundtable will showcase the leadership and ambition of the health sector in taking climate action and I will be incorporating the AFMW lens.
This Roundtable is very significant in that it is being held as part of the Better Futures Australia initiative, which brings together climate champions from all corners of society and the economy to drive climate ambition and share a message of hope for better futures for us all. Over 27-29 July, the national Better Futures Forum will provide the number one platform for Australian organisations, businesses, and other leaders to publicly express their commitment to more ambitious climate action.
As a member of the Health Working Group, our focus is on ways health stakeholders can build momentum for climate action in the lead up to the international climate negotiations (UNFCCC 26th Conference of the Parties, COP26) in Glasgow this November, as well as to celebrate climate work already underway across the health sector.
