Plenary One: What does it mean to be a community right now?

More than a year into the COVID-19 pandemic, we continue to face challenges in coming together in community. The individual and collective health impacts of exclusion, marginalization, inequity, polarization, loneliness and isolation have never been more evident. Our opening plenary will explore what it means to be a community in this time of physical distancing and social separation. The session will highlight inspiring examples of bravery, love, leadership and collaboration across differences from within the community health movement and beyond, showcasing the potential for community-led futures while bringing into focus our theme of Power in Community.

Plenary Four: Systemic Change to Support Health Equity: Lessons from COVID-19 and where to go next

Issues of health equity and the ongoing impacts of colonialism, racism and capitalism are front of mind for a much a wider community during COVID-19. Interest in taking action on a broader scale to create more inclusive, just and equitable systems is growing. In this plenary, speaker(s) will take a national-level perspective on what potential systemic change to address inequities could look like, and the actions we need to take to get there.
