About this Event


Cr Mark Greenhill OAM, Mayor of Blue Mountains City

Dr. Rosemary Dillon, CEO Blue Mountains City Council

Associate Professor Louise Crabtree, Institute for Culture and Society

Dr. Leo Robba, School of Humanities and Communication Arts

Professor Tony Capon, Director of Monash Sustainable Development Institute, Monash University

In this panel, researchers from Western Sydney University and Monash University will be joined by the Mayor and the CEO of Blue Mountains City Council to discuss the discipline of planetary health and its role in responses to crises such as the 2019-2020 bushfires and COVID-19.

Looking at why social and economic models must recognise and strengthen the interdependencies between planetary and human health, the panellists will present on the importance of building engaged partnerships between universities and local government for enabling planetary health in the Blue Mountains as a way to ‘bounce forward’ into more resilient and healthy economies, communities, and places. This conversation coincides with the 20-year anniversary of the region's UNESCO World Heritage listing in November this year.

The session will commence with short presentations by the panel of experts and be followed by a moderated conversation to share their experiences and perspectives on enabling planetary health at the local community level. Attendees will have the opportunity to ask questions and contribute to the debates.

This event is hosted by SISTER-Hub at Western Sydney University
