In the masterclass, Adjunct Professor Weeramanthri encouraged participants to tell high-level, simple stories that summarise the evidence for change as an effective way to engage others, as he had done in his recent work on the Western Australian Government’s Inquiry into the Impacts of Climate Change on Health.

Adjunct Professor Weeramanthri, a community physician, is former Chief Health Officer of Western Australia and the Northern Territory. He was the leading force behind the establishment in the 1990s of the territory’s chronic conditions prevention and management strategy, which remains in place today.
