EfS in tertiary level Health courses is a relative new, emerging area for sustainability education.
We are excited that Teresa Capetola and Sue Noy from Deakin University have agreed to help set up the Health & Wellness in EfS Hub.
To kick this off, we are holding a forum in the first week of March around the theme:
WHAT: What are the best ways to integrate sustainability education into health related tertiary level courses ?
WHEN: next Thurs 3rd March at 4 – 5 pm (Eastern Standard Time – if you are other states you will need to calculate the appropriate time for you).
WHERE: via ZOOM link up.
WHO: The discussion will be started with information and ideas from:
Teresa Capetola and Sue Noy from Deakin University
Fiona Armstrong from the Climate and Health Alliance – who will also talk about what was discussed at climate and health sessions at the Paris COP.
HOW TO JOIN: Email Colin Hocking at c.hocking@latrobe .edu.au to let me know that you want to be on the email list inviting you to the Zoom session – there is NO COST in participating in this session.
Some of the things we are likely to discuss include (why not join and add your own questions and ideas):
- What are the ways that sustainability courses should and can be incorporated into health-related courses in the tertiary sector?
- What is the current status of sustainability in the health sector and health courses and should this change? In what ways?
- What might a SUSTAINed “health hub” in EfS look like, and how might this contribute to development ofthe EfS in Higher Ed scene, including in interdisciplinary focused education?
- What types of links are useful with organisations outside of tertiary education, for example links to NGOs and Advocacy groups such as CAHA?
