Event details

Community STaR event with Eva Cox (18 March 2019)

Community STaR (Service for Training and Research) presents an event with Eva Cox (Adjunct Professor, Jumbunna Institute for Indigenous Education and Research)

“Recreating a healthy society with citizens, not consumers: a social fairness contract, not just growth”

Eva Cox is a Professorial Fellow at Jumbunna Indigenous House of Learning at the University of Technology. She is a writer, feminist, sociologist, social commentator and activist for creating more civil societies. Her feminism is all about working towards a better society, not making women more like men. Her ABC Boyer Lectures in 1995, entitled A Truly Civil Society argued that social capital is more important than financial capital. She wants social policies that recognise the value of feelings, relationships, culture and those areas important to both Indigenous people and women. Eva is an Australian Order recipient and has her own Australia Post Legends postage stamp.

CHETRE Presentations – Winter/Spring 2017

CHETRE staff have presented work at a number of international conferences in Winter and Spring of 2017. The projects and details about the conferences are listed below.

Projects

 

Western Sydney Airport:

Presenting the findings of a Health Impact Assessment (HIA) conducted through a partnerships between UNSW, South Western Sydney Local Health District, and Western Sydney Community Forum. The HIA was based on stakeholder engagement around the proposed Western Sydney Airport. The HIA produced a set of recommended changes to how ongoing community engagement is conducted in Western Sydney to increase the potential health benefits of the process. These recommendations could be adapted to other large infrastructure projects.

 

 

Wollondilly Shire Council:

The Centre for Health Equity Training, Research and Evaluation (CHETRE) in partnership with a Local Health District (SWSLHD), and Wollondilly Shire Council (WSC) has worked to identify ways of integrating health into Council policy and planning. The project identified three approaches (1) integrating a health vision in high level policy documents, (2) creating a health assessment policy that identifies at what points and how health can be considered in planning and policy making, and (3) establishing a joint health/ council position.

Conference Presentations

The 14th Annual International Conference on Urban Health (ICUH) this year focused on Health Equity, bringing together researchers, professionals and clinicians from diverse fields . This conference examined urban health from multiple perspectives, and invited participants to engage with the UN sustainable development goals. The week commenced with two days of workshops, and continued with a wide range of presentations including plenary sessions, panel presentations and posters.
