Kids health and climate change

Posted on: Sun 2 Dec 2018

As Australians we care for the future of our kids, and there is one key issue that threatens this – climate change.

Children are inherently vulnerable to the health effects of climate change. These include physiological, developmental and behavioural factors.

Doctors for the Environment is launching a new campaign called ‘No Time For Games’ in response to the need to make deep emissions cuts by 2030.

To talk about the ‘No Time For Games’, Barometer’s Des Lawrence spoke to the campaign’s co-ordinator, Dr Ingo Weber.
