Global Voices 2019 Scholar for the UNFCCC COP25

I’m Anna, a Bachelor of Medical Science student majoring in Nutrition based in Cairns. Climate change may not be the first thing that comes to mind when you think of nutrition, but our environment, food systems, and health are intrinsically linked.

Global Voices was an opportunity to unite my passions of nutrition and environmental sustainability for real life application in national and international contexts.

It’s time to check in…

No one could have predicted what 2020 would hold for all of us, as a university and on a global level. It has been a difficult and stressful year to say the least

Through taking action to keep ourselves and others safe from the spread of COVID-19, we have been met with unprecedented levels of stress, uncertainty and loneliness as a consequence.

Dealing with ongoing stress and ambiguity has a big impact on how we think and feel about ourselves and how we cope with the day to day challenges we face. As a result, many people are more vulnerable at this point.

It’s okay not to be okay. It’s okay not to be coping. It’s okay to be grieving as restrictions continue to impact our lives. We have had less opportunity to exercise, socialise, study on campus, and fewer chances to connect with friends, family, fellow students, and work colleagues.

2020 continues to present us with challenges. That is why it is important to check in with others. R U Ok? Day is coming up again this year on Thursday, 10 September.

Be part of our R U Ok? Day video

R U Ok? Day has become a national call to action to empower people to connect in supportive ways. This year it’s happening on Thursday, 10 September.

As a part of R U Ok? Day, we are asking you “How Do You Say Are you okay?” and how do you reply when asked that question? We want to share the ‘real ways people ask if others are okay’.  We recognise the complexity and sensitivity of mental health and that it’s often not a simple ‘are you okay?’ with a yes or no response.

We are compiling a video that will share student voices. Keep reading to find out more!
