The aim of the symposium is to explore the salience of non-humans to the lives and health of human individuals and communities, and challenges the distinction between social and physical environments.

We have a fantastic line up of speakers:

  • Evelyne de Leeuw (UNSW, SWSLHD) - Airports as (healthy...?) ecosystems
  • Viki Brookes (Charles Sturt University) - Free-roaming community dogs in Northern Australia
  • Cameron Webb (University of Sydney, NSW Health Pathology) - Managing mosquitoes through strategic urban planning
  • Emma Power (Western Sydney University) - Housing: a critical care infrastructure
  • Cheryl Travers (University of Wollongong) - Responsibility for companion animals in natural disasters
  • Melanie Rock (University of Calgary, Canada) - Healthy publics as multi-species matters

The Symposium is free, but registration is essential and places are limited.
