Climate Change FX: young people and mental health

Monday, 22 November 2021 - 8:30am to 9:00am

In light of what people, in particular Indigenous and First Nations peoples, have called a failure at COP26, we bring you two conversations on the effects of climate change.

We first hear from the Pacific Climate Warriors Coordinator for Victoria, Folole Asueao Sagele Tupuola who first spoke with Thursday Breakfast. Daughter of the Moana, they are a storyteller and artist settled on Wathaurung Country and talk about the #Youth4Pacific Declaration on Climate Change that was delivered to Pacific Leaders at COP26. 

Then, Helen Berry who is Honorary Professor at the Australian Institute of Health Innovation at Macquarie University, speaks about her recent publications on the mental health impacts of climate change on young people and children. Helen is a widely-cited psychiatric epidemiologist and expert in how climate change, disasters and social and physical place influence mental health and wellbeing.


Monday 8:30am to 9:00am
