I extend a heartfelt invitation to you for an event that promises to be an absolute blast while addressing critical issues that affect us all.

Sustainable Urology: The Path from Orange to Green

We are thrilled to be hosting this event that brings together the vibrant community of Orange, NSW, and the urgent need to address the impact of the climate emergency on urology and healthcare. Your presence at this event would not only enhance its success but also contribute to an essential conversation.

In today's world, the climate emergency is an undeniable reality. We aim to explore sustainable practices and innovations in surgery that can mitigate these effects and create a healthier future for all. We’ll also explore efficiencies in urological practice from operating theatre utilisation to building a sustainable career. Our event will delve into the crucial topic of how climate change affects healthcare, particularly within the field of urology.

Known as Australia’s food basket, Orange and the Central West has built a more recent reputation as a foodie paradise. Orange is a place rich in history, culture, and natural beauty. Our event will not only showcase the great things that Orange has to offer but also highlight the importance of preserving and protecting our environment. From its lush landscapes to its commitment to sustainability, Orange is a shining example of a community working towards a greener future.
