More information:

Based on Australian research, the Forum will highlight the strengths and weaknesses of policy in each sector from a health and well-being perspective. Panel lists from each of the four sectors will respond to the research findings and debate strategies for strengthening future policy. The deliberations will be used to craft recommendations to inform healthy policy development.

Aims of the Forum

  1. Disseminate research findings to stimulate discussion about how policy in the energy, natural environment, urban planning and justice sectors can contribute to population well-being and sustainability
  2. Spark lively debate between key decision-makers from government, NGOs and Universities on how we can maximise well-being and sustainability through well-designed public policy
  3. Create policy recommendations for how Australian governments can make our communities and society more sustainable and supportive of well-being.

Benefits of attending

Hear and debate findings from the latest, innovative policy relevant research; gain ideas about how to apply new policy thinking; influence key decision-makers’ perspectives on policy issues and strategies and gain new knowledge and insights about Australian policy systems.

This research was funded by the Australian Research Council.
