Caring for the planet is caring for us

Caring for the planet is caring for us

Caring for the planet is caring for us – why planetary health is important here and now –  Dr Darshini Heaney and Dr Kim Loo 

” …safeguarding the health and well being of current and future generations through good stewardship of Earth’s natural systems and by rethinking the way we feed, move, house, power, and care for the world.” 

Professor of Planetary Health, Tony Capon, the world’s first Professor of Planetary Health,  University of Sydney


In this presentation, GPs Dr Kim Loo and Dr Darshini Heaney will talk about this new field of medicine, and how CCL’s approach and goals support planetary health – and in so doing also support the big picture of the UN Sustainable Development Goals.


Kim and Darshini are both members of CCL Australia, and co-host the north Sydney area groups.

They are also both active members of Doctors for the Environment Australia and were recently part of the national iDEA conference held in Newcastle.

Kim has written for Fairfax media on behalf of the Climate Council and has been interviewed on Sunrise Channel 7 about her family’s energy efficient home.
