Due to the increasing levels of Covid in the community the OGCA AGM and Guest Speaker Presentation was held via Zoom. We believe this was the responsible approach.
The meeting commenced at 7pm on Wednesday 3 Aug with the AGM taking about 15 minutes and then moved onto our guest speaker Lawry’s presentation. Lawry’s talk, including time for questions, ran for an hour.
Professor Lawry St Leger was the Dean of the Faculty of Health at Deakin University for seven years and has also worked extensively with the World Health Organization in supporting national and international health related programs in Europe, Asia and North America.
Lawry spoke on a range of health related topics with a focus on Connection to Nature and the benefits to and impacts on youth learning of such connections including Australian and international developments and experiences in that space and on social media and youth learning. Lawry will draw on his knowledge and experience and to talk to us in a conversational style including some fascinating anecdotes.
