“The greatest resource we have to solve any problem is howwe think about it. The Climate Change Framework produced bythe Southern Grampians and Glenelg Primary Care Partnershipliberates us from thinking that as individuals, or as communities,we are powerless in the face of climate change. The OttawaCharter for health promotion framework that the authors haveused breaks down the seemingly insurmountable into actionsand processes that show how all sectors have a role to play.”
