Hashtag for 2021: strategic imagination (term within the Royal Commission) reminds us of the need to imagine what we haven’t seen before to best prepare for our future. It’s a new climate not just a new temperature.
This health-oriented workshop aims to:
- Provoke strategic ideas and response from health practitioners and health systems to adequately prepare and foster adaptation response for the changing climate; and
- Identify tools that might be useful for strategic health planning within the system.
This session is an online event, open to the public and featuring a panel of invited experienced health practitioners and researchers as speakers to discuss a future scenario. This hypothetical scenario will prompt questions and discussion about individual and community health as well as health system response centred around risk of natural disasters in our changing climate.
