As we grapple with the increasing consequences of climate change, experts are warning that it’s not just an environmental issue, declaring it the ‘biggest global health threat of the 21st century’.

In the face of these warnings, where does Australia stand in its preparedness to address these health challenges, both locally and globally?

In a discussion led by ABC’s climate and health reporter, Tegan Taylor, hear from experts on how disasters such as bushfires and droughts, which are heightened by climate change, are triggering a spectrum of health risks – from infectious diseases to respiratory issues, and mental health challenges – with the vulnerable minority and at-risk groups bearing a disproportionate burden.

The panel will discuss the critical intersection of climate change and public health, while exploring solutions for collective action from government, industry and society.
