Panel: Urban Environments and Our Health

  • Venture Cafe Sydney 58 Waterloo Road Macquarie Park (map)

Let’s consider what science tells us about living and working in urban environments. In this context, how can we more effectively engage with the community to produce high quality data about our living environments? 

Can this approach be used to create more effective public health management strategies, focussing on prevention rather than treatment?  Could we reimagine a healthcare system where providers are making informed decisions not just based on biometrics but  with patient related information on urban factors—including environmental pollutants such as air quality, anti-microbial resistance, asbestos, dust, micro-plastics, pesticides, allergens etc.
