Past Consultation Submissions

Jul 7, 2023 | Uncategorised

The Collective often develops and issues statements and consultation feedback. In our typical process, our core team works on a draft which is then circulated for comments and feedback from our teams of advisers before it is finalised, and submitted or published.

Looking back at some of our past submissions, we can see how formative they were to the work we have advanced today and also to the work of our governments. These include:

Special Report on Obesity and Covid-19

Feedback submission for the first round of consultation in September 2020 and the second round of consultation in April 2021 for the National Preventive Health Strategy

Feedback submission for the first round of consultation in December 2019 and the second round of consultation in November 2021 for the National Obesity Strategy

Policy brief associated with a Rapid Review of Weight Stigma in the Media conducted by researchers at the University of Sydney
