Australian Committee for IUCN: Healthy People in a Healthy Environment

SCIENCE INFORMING POLICY SYMPOSIUM SERIES
Healthy People in a Healthy Environment: Valuing the Social and Cultural Benefits of Nature

Background

Established in 2011, ACIUCN’s Science Informing Policy Symposium is a high-level, two-day event held in partnership with members and other organisations that engages leading experts on national conservation priorities to help inform key environmental policy.

The 2019 Symposium, Healthy People in a Healthy Environment, will focus on the critical link between human health and social well-being, and the environment. The event will provide an opportunity to help focus Australia’s thinking on these important issues and on how to raise awareness and conserve the many benefits a healthy environment provides for people and nature.

This symposium is being held in partnership with the Queensland Department of Environment and Science, WWF-Australia, Bush Heritage Australia and the NSW National Parks and Wildlife Service.

Audience

Given the cross-sectoral nature and intention of the symposium, the event will engage a broad audience of up to 140 people across the government, NGO, health, corporate, agriculture, Indigenous Peoples, industry and academic sectors.
