The Advocate engages the breadth of Latrobe communities and encourages them to prioritise and have a say about the sustainability of their health and wellbeing. The Latrobe Health Innovation Zone is the platform that enables everyone to have a say in making things happen differently.
Local communities want to be informed about industrial developments that are occurring, they want to know about potential health and environmental risks, and they are seeking reassurance from government and industry that their health and wellbeing will be protected.
The Advocate has heard from Latrobe communities about;
- Hazelwood North used lead acid battery (ULAB) recycling plant
- Delburn Wind Farm
- Waste to Energy
- Mine rehabilitation
- Asbestos management
- Transition from coal to clean energy
