Join us for our five sessions in which the Victoria University community will gather, reflect and make decisions that will strengthen our planetary health focus in 2021.

Green rooftops, the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), working with our communities, carbon-neutral campuses, Global Ethics Toolkit, transdisciplinary learning and research are just some of topics on the agenda for our inaugural Planetary Health Huddle.

Victoria University is making a stand for planetary health with a whole-of-university approach to situate planetary health at the centre of our identity and moral purpose – making it part of The VU Way.

In 2020, across our teaching, research, university operations and community partnerships, important steps have been taken to set the foundations for our planetary health future. Now it is time to get more involved on this journey. Please join us to anchor planetary health at VU.

Program
