Description

Healthy Futures is an organisation of health professionals, students and community members taking action to address climate change and related threats to health.

Health is everyone's business. Anyone can be a member of Healthy Futures.

We campaign for commitments from decision-makers to effectively address the climate crisis. We recognise that this requires building people power from the bottom up.

We focus on connecting people who are concerned about the health impacts of climate change and empowering them to take collective action.

We're currently focusing on getting HESTA and First State Super to divest from fossil fuels.

We're a network of health professionals, students & supporters organising to address climate change & related health issues
"Climate change is the biggest global health threat of the 21st century.”
-The Lancet

Healthy Futures is a campaign to mobilise health workers in demanding their superannuation funds divest from fossil fuels. Super funds like HESTA and First State are the default fund for health professionals, yet they invest in climate change, toxic air pollution, and other serious health threats.

We believe anyone serious about promoting a healthy future cannot ignore the threat that climate change represents to our planet and our health.

Healthy Futures is an affiliate group of Friends of the Earth Australia.
