Extreme weather is one of the biggest threats facing our world. To minimise the impact, communities, economies and health care systems need to respond and adapt. But how?
This term's Burnet News topic is global - that’s why young people around the world are invited to take part in this learning project and join a global conversation. The conversation will also cover the current COVID-19 pandemic, and explore the similarities between responding to an extreme health-care event and extreme weather.
