Invitation to participate; Transitions to Sustainable Health Systems

Workshop Project - led by Monash Sustainable Development Institute

Phase 1 of the project seeks to established a consortium of health system stakeholders, working together in a process of collective learning to develop an implementation focused guide to accelerate emissions reductions in the Australian health system.


As part of this work there is a series of workshops, and IHEA are seeking interested parties to participate in the workshop series.

The aim of the workshops is to bring together practice and policy experience and expertise in the health sector to:

  • Better understand the drivers of emissions in the health system

  • Share knowledge and experience in what has worked (and what hasn’t) in implementing emissions reduction initiatives

  • Hear examples of leading practice and innovation

  • Explore what would enable emissions reduction in the Australian health system (make it easier, more affordable and more effective) while also supporting broader sustainability goals

  • Identify and prioritize actions that could accelerate emissions reduction for organizations and across the health system.

The workshop dates and topics are as follows:

1. Energy, facilities and transport (online)

Thursday 25 July: 12:00 - 4:30 pm AEST (Part 1)

Friday 26 July: 12:30 - 5:00 AEST (Part 2)

2. Green procurement and material waste (online)

Tuesday 6 August: 12:30 - 5:00 pm AEST (Part 1)

Wednesday 7 August: 12:30 - 5:00 pm AEST (Part 2)

3. Prevention and models of care (online)

Tuesday 10 September: 12:30 - 5:00 pm AEST (Part 1)

Thursday 12 September: 12:30 - 5:00 pm AEST (Part 2)

4. Synthesis and Enablers workshop (in person in central Melbourne)

Monday 14 October: 9:00am - 5:00pm

Participation from the Institute of Healthcare Engineering Australia would bring a valuable perspective to the collective understanding of the challenges and pathways to accelerating emissions reduction in the health system as a whole.

There is no requirement to prepare a talk or presentation, rather to join the conversations and contribute your experiences (under the Chatham House rule) and thoughts about the implications of challenges and solutions from your perspective.
