About this Event

It has often been said that political leaders do not take the climate crisis as seriously as they have taken COVID-19. However, COVID-19 is a coronavirus which emerged because of our exploitation of animals and their habitats, and this impost on biodiversity is also a contributing factor to carbon emissions and the climate crisis. The COVID-19 pandemic has left an indelible mark on humans as we struggle with the climate crisis, and both have extreme ramifications for human health.

How can creative, design and health practitioners respond to the enormous challenges of health within crises such as COVID-19 and the climate emergency? How can we work together and across our respective fields? And how can we use creative practices to better care for our planet and our health?

Join Dr Katherine Baraclough (Doctors for the Environment Australia), Professor Sarah Bekessy (ICONScience research group + biodiversity, RMIT University), Professor Vishaal Kishare (Director, Health Transformation Lab + Applied Innovation, RMIT University) and Associate Professor Dominic Redfern (School of Art, RMIT University) who work across creative arts, design, healthcare and climate activism. Hosted by Associate Professor Keely Macarow (School of Art, RMIT University), these speakers will discuss how these areas can converge in response to key creative, health and environmental concerns of our times.
