iDEA 2021: Planet Health and Hope (DEA) – 15-17 October
October 15 - October 17$30 – $275
The annual Doctors for the Environment Australia’s (DEA) conference is taking place this October 15-17.
The theme for iDEA21 is “Planet, Health and Hope”, an inspiring and important conference on climate and health run by Doctors For The Environment.
“Planet, health and hope” gives an up-to-date assessment of the current state of the climate crisis, from scientific, medical, cultural and political perspectives and importantly also looks at the solutions available to help solve it. There are health based solutions (of course) and also solutions from other sectors including engineering, marine drawdown, economics and the law.
The conference will be held online, so please come along and join in this critical conversation. It’s going to be a really engaging and informative weekend. I have booked to go already!
