Attending the Better Futures Forum this week was invigorating.
Here are some of the tweets I sent out @drmsimonis to the forum attendees:
“Australia more prone to catastrophic #climatechange Leaders who minimise or deny this & argue in favour of maintaining a fossil fuel driven, post-COVID economic recovery, threaten the nation’s well-being and the survival of the planet. “
“ Address gendered impacts of climate change as we work to protect the planet that sustains us. Climate change solutions create economic opportunities fix systemic gendered inequities as part of the process “
Check out this series of cartoons which summarise this amazing series of talks at this 3Day events.
