S4 E02 Human Health and Climate

This episode looks at the implications for human health as the climate changes.

Vanora Mulvenna joins us from the DHHS (the Victorian State government’s Department of Health and Human Services) to discuss how our state government is already planning for the health impacts of climate change. From bushfires to mosquito borne pathogens to future proofing public housing, they are planning for it.  

Before the interview Allie takes some time to reflect on the latest IPCC report and celebrates Saltgrass being a finalist in the Jackson Wild Awards.  Fellow finalists are The Hopecast, by Jane Goodall and a National geographic project called The Guardians of the River.

This episode was created in 2021 as part of a series called Saltgrass: Turning the Goldfields Green, which was created with support from MAINfm and the Community Broadcasting Foundation.
