Everybody needs a Planetary Health Day!
We know how overloaded everyone feels so we’re holding a PLANETARY HEALTH DAY on Saturday 24 February (9am-3pm). It will be a one-stop shop and fun Community Day at the Planetary Health Precinct to help you tick off all those sustainability and disaster risk reduction goals on your to-do list.
