We're delighted to welcome Professor Garry Egger as a keynote speaker at the Behaviour Change for Sustainability National Congress this year on 10th-11th November in Sydney.
Professor Egger is the Director of the Centre for Health Promotion and Research, and also the author of Planet Obesity: how we are eating ourselves and the planet to death
The book outlines interesting and thought provoking ideas around the relationship between climate change, eating behaviours, obesity and the economic system.
He makes the vital link between personal and community health, and behaviour change for sustainability.
In this fascinating interview with 3 Pillars Network, he talks about psychology, epidemiology (the study of health patterns in society) and his vast experience of behaviour change programmes for health and lifestyle.
Could obesity be the canary in the colamine alerting us to bigger
problems in the fundamental structure of our society?
