Fires and droughts are only the flashpoints of rising temperatures. Heat-induced health issues, though less conspicuous, are also a risk.
Bendigo’s socio-economic landscape makes it especially vulnerable to this creeping problem, and its residents are suffering — both physically and mentally.
Today, we’re bringing you an interview with CAJ student Jerome Des Preaux about his reporting on health and heat. His article was co-published by The Citizen and The Bendigo Advertiser. It’s part of an ongoing Regional Reporting project focused on Greater Bendigo, or Dja Dja Wurrung Country.
