When and where

The Forum will take place on Friday 7 October in-person on Awabakal country, at the Hunter Medical Research Institute, and online.

Who should come

Anyone interested in improving the environmental footprint of healthcare and aged care, and fostering a healthy future for people and the planet. The forum will provide opportunities for connection, knowledge sharing, learning and upskilling, for both in-person and online attendees.

About the program

The overarching theme of the Forum is ‘Driving systems change for sustainable healthcare'Together, we'll examine these three questions:

  • Where are we at? Gathering the evidence
  • What can we do? Sustainable healthcare and circular economy solutions in practice
  • What is the big picture? Policy for sustainable healthcare

A diverse line-up of speakers, from healthcare, government, industry partners, academia and beyond, will share their expertise on current research, policy, industry innovations and practical examples of sustainable healthcare in action.
