On February 18-19, 2020, the EHN organized and participated in a workshop in Hobart, Tasmania, to strengthen and support ecological restoration and its links to human health, with a focus on restoration efforts and leading research underway across Australia and New Zealand.

In November 2020, EHN will bring together a multi-disciplinary group to explore how public health research and practice can be embedded in ecological restoration projects, and how we can advance storytelling about the positive health impacts of restoration efforts. We will also discuss ways to bring ecological restoration into urban initiatives concerned with environmental justice, climate change, and the health of children and the elderly.
