Healthy Climate | Connecting Climate, Health and Housing with Dr Tim Read MP

Recent heatwaves, bushfires, floods and coastal erosion have exposed the depth of Australian households’ vulnerability to climate change. Increasingly, the health impacts of these major events, as well as the more subtle, cumulative impacts of our changing climate are becoming apparent.


In this episode Laura Phillips, Head of Urban Advocacy at HIP V. HYPE is joined by Dr Tim Read, a medical practitioner and the Greens MP for Brunswick and Kate Nicolazzo, General Manager, Sustainability at HIP V. HYPE to discuss the intimate connection between climate change and public health.
