Event Description:This is an image of the bright star Antares in Scorpios. It has great significance in Arab, Persian and Indian astronomy traditions and will be in the eastern sky on the 8th of August. Mars shines brightly red when it moves through Scorpius and hence, in proximity to Mars in the sky, it gets the name Antares meaning Rival to Mars.

#D2KDay Caring for Ourselves with Joe Sehee - Part of Our Global Village Celebrations

#D2KDay Caring for Ouselves with Joe Sehee - Part of Our Global Village Celebrations

Organisation: Dying to Know Day is about bringing to life conversations and community actions around death, dying and bereavement. It is the brainchild of The Groundswell Project.

Care Beyond Cure Inc provide free fortnightly access to complimentary therapies, Art Therapy and Art workshops for individuals with a diagnosed progressive life limiting illness and their family carer/s if they have one. This program also has a bereavement component. 

Care Beyond Cure Inc are also one of eight chosen sites across Australia as part of the The Groundswell Project's Compassionate Communities Forum - Click on 'Enter Site' for further information about the project vis this link https://www.comcomhub.com/

Website: http://www.facebook.com/CareBeyondCure

Target audience : This session is suitable for people currently working in this area such as family carers, support workers, nurses, doctors, social workers, chaplains or anyone who feels this session could be of value.

Event Type: Interactive Talk/Workshop via SKYPE

Event Description: Being around grief and loss, as with almost any job that connects us to human pain and suffering, exposes us to 'secondary traumatic stress.' Left unchecked this exposure can lead to debilitating conditions such as vicarious trauma, burnout and compassion fatigue. This workshop will examine the strategies and tools such as reflection, mindfulness and peer support, which can be used to mitigate the emotional/existential impacts of this work, as well as to help us be able to mediate meaning and purpose through this work.

Joe Sehee has worked in the end-of-life field for nearly 20 years. Founder and former Executive Director of the Green Burial Council in the US, Joe has more recently been working as a non-religious pastoral carer and wellbeing consultant. Joe currently serves as volunteer chaplain with the Victorian Council of Churches Emergencies Ministry as well as with Caulfield Hospital. He is also a burnout survivor.

This is a Skyped event with Joe and is part of NDAN's #D2KDay Global Village Celebrations from 9am at the same address.

Event Type: Inclusive Community art project using wool yarn

Event Description: Working together towards a common creative goal is a lot of fun. Participants can expect to be involved in a welcoming, colourful, workshop to create a beautiful work of art. A marine underwater scene is being created to celebrate the amazing diversity of marine species we currently know of.

 Building a garden bed with Eco-bricks

 Building a garden bed with Eco-bricks

 Building a garden bed with Eco-bricks

Target audience : open

Participants will be involved with hands-on construction of garden bed at the WLPS garden. It will involve using eco-bricks which are 2l milk containers filled with soft plastics in an effort to reduce the risk of plastics entering the ocean and impacting on marine life. The garden bed is designed to complement the kitchen garden by creating a growing space for healthy vegetables and herbs.

Event Type: In all countries across the globe we share a common link of experiencing peace in community when people are nourished with health-giving food. This workshop demonstrates a simple technique to create a garden bed, with the added benefit of respecting marine life by reducing plastic pollution.

Event Description: Building an eco-brick garden bed is simple but like all jobs in the garden "many hands make light work". Participants will each have a task to perform and assist with building the garden bed. The physical construction of the garden bed will be stage one, with completion of the garden bed occurring over the following weeks in preparation for planting in spring.

Venue: West Launceston Primary School 24-38 Basin Rd West Launceston

Hon Brendan Nelson

AO BMBS FRACP (Hon) FAMA FRSN

Dr Brendan Nelson has been the Director of the Australian War Memorial for almost six years. Prior to this role, he was the Australian Ambassador to Belgium, Luxembourg, the European Union and NATO. Apart from overseeing a major transformation in Australia’s relationships with the European Union and NATO, Dr Nelson forged deep links with the communities of Flanders, where almost 14,000 Australians lost their lives during the First World War. He regularly made the trip from Brussels to the Menin Gate Memorial to the ‘missing’ at Ieper, where the names of 6,190 Australians who died in the First World War and have no known grave are listed.

 

Born in Victoria, Dr Nelson graduated with a Bachelor of Medicine and Surgery from Flinders University before working as a medical practitioner in Hobart from 1985 to 1995. During this period he served as National President of the Australian Medical Association where he campaigned on a wide range of social policy issues, including Aboriginal health and immunisation. He also led the campaign against tobacco advertising and sponsorship of sport and was a relentless advocate for private health insurance. 

Dr Nelson was elected to the Federal Parliament of Australia in 1996. Some 10 years later he was appointed Minister for Defence when troops were deployed to Iraq, Afghanistan, East Timor and the Solomon Islands. 

 

The following year Dr Nelson was elected leader of the Liberal Party of Australia, serving as Leader of the Opposition until September 2008.

In 1995 Dr Nelson was awarded the AMA’s highest honour, the Gold Medal for “Distinguished Service to Medicine and Humanity”. In recognition of his commitment to public health, he was awarded an Honorary Fellowship of the Royal Australasian College of Physicians. In 2011 he received an Honorary Doctorate from Flinders University and in 2017, an Honorary Doctorate from the Australian National University.  He is a Fellow of the Royal Society of NSW (2017), Rotary Paul Harris Fellow and a Sydney University John Lowenthal Medallist.

Dr Nelson was appointed an Officer of the Order of Australia (AO) in January 2016 for his services to the community, the parliament of Australia, diplomacy and cultural leadership.

In addition to being Director of the Australian War Memorial Dr Nelson is a Distinguished Visiting Fellow at ANU; Member of the Australian Genome Project Advisory Board; Patron of Lifeline ACT; Patron of Trish MS Research; Patron of the Weary Dunlop Foundation; Patron of the NSW RSL and Services Clubs; Ambassador for Legacy Australia; Ambassador for the Invictus Games for disabled veterans; ambassador for Soldier On and ambassador for the Defence Reserve Forces Council.
