The theme of this year's Forum is Driving systems change for sustainable healthcare.

This one-day Forum will showcase the ways health sector leaders in Australia are decarbonising their operations, improving their climate resilience, and working to improve health equity. It will guidance on how to scale this up, as well as insights to support health services to prepare for the impacts of climate change, and uphold its moral imperative to: ‘first, do no harm’.

The Forum will feature current research and policy to support the transition to net zero carbon and environmentally sustainable healthcare, and will showcase practical examples of environmentally sustainable healthcare in action. It provided opportunities for connection, knowledge sharing, learning, and upskilling.

The Climate and Health Alliance, in partnership with leading healthcare stakeholders, have run annual events focusing on environmentally sustainable healthcare since 2012 (excluding 2020). This year CAHA and Hunter New England Local Health District will partner to deliver the Greening the Healthcare Sector Forum (the Forum) in Newcastle. Host partner Hunter Medical Research Institute are providing the venue for the Forum at the X, on Awabakal and Worimi country (New Lambton Heights, Newcastle).
