GoMA talks: How are health and the environment linked in the 21st century and are our lifestyles putting economies at risk?

Hosted by Paul Barclay, Australia Talks

Global concerns about health and environmental degradation and change permeate almost every aspect of our lives in the 21st century. We are becoming increasingly interested in how scientific research being undertaken by our leading researchers is reflected in broader political decisions and policies, and the public availability of this cutting-edge information.

Guest panellists will explore some of the pivotal issues about health and the environment in the 21st century, including clinical innovations in medicine, public perceptions of environmental issues such as climate change, media representation, and the actions begin taken by young Australians.

The panel this week – Paul Barclay (Host), Ian Frazer, Anne Fulwood, Amanda McKenzie and Joseph Reser.
