Bringing together climate adaptation, Indigenous knowledge and community health

How can we build community connections and resilience in the face of climate change, improve our health and put Indigenous knowledge at the centre?

The Armidale Climate and Health  Project will be running a series of workshops and a community festival addressing this question, and building local knowledge and skills. Workshops are running intermittently throughout the year, and we have partnered with the Black Gully Festival for the end event.

Our Vision

The health impacts of the climate crisis are being felt around the globe, but the effects are not evenly distributed either geographically or socially. On one hand, some places will  warm faster than others, but, on the other, some communities and people are more vulnerable to the health impacts than others. As such, the different risks of climate change are already worsening the inequities already present in our society. We want to address that injustice in the Armidale community while also working to both adapt to and mitigate the worst effects of climate change.This grassroots initiative aims to build community connections, recognise diverse needs, centre Indigenous knowledge and seed sustainable action to address health issues related to climate change at a local level.
