Other information

Are climate change and global warming inevitable? Can we feed a world population of ten billion people? Imagine a lush green planet with healthy plants, animals and people, providing plenty of nutritious food and quality drinking water for everyone. Does it sound too good to be true? How we farm and the food we choose to eat significantly impacts our health. In the same way, farming affects the planet’s health, as evidenced by climate change. We must turn our attention away from carbon dioxide and methane and focus instead on the global mismanagement of farmland. What we eat and how we grow it is causing climate change. We must teach farmers worldwide how to adopt regenerative farming practices to heal the planet and ourselves.

Dr Beaney’s talk will appeal to anyone with an interest in personal and planetary health.
It will be followed by a Q and A session.

In 2014, having retired after forty years as a GP and weighing 108 kilos, John Beaney commenced an in-depth study of nutrition, changed his diet, lost 24 kilos, and commenced sharing with other U3A members his understanding of this ever-evolving and fascinating subject.

How to Enrol

On-line: after bookings have opened

On-line enrolments are preferred as this significantly reduces the amount of back-office work for our volunteers.

  • Login to the U3APP.org.au website.
  • Go to the Courses & Enrolling page.
  • Scroll down to find the course that you are interested in.
  • Does the course have spaces available?
    • Click on the course name to go to the booking page.
    • Click on “Book for this course or event”.
    • You will receive a confirmation email.  Please check your Junk/Spam folders as these automatically-generated emails often finish up there.

    • Click on WAITLIST.

Paper Enrolment Form: before bookings open for First Semester

  • Obtain a paper Enrolment Form either from the Office or by printing an online copy available here.
  • Complete the paper Enrolment Form and submit it to the Office.

The start date for acceptance of paper Enrolment Forms for first semester is published on the U3APP website and in the e-Bulletin. Enrolment Forms received before this date are treated as though they had been received on the start date (ie there is no advantage to be gained by submitting early). On the start date and thereafter, paper Enrolment Forms are numbered in order of receipt.  Paper Enrolment forms are processed by U3APP volunteers on the same day as on-line bookings.

If your enrolment is successful, you will receive a confirmation email.  Please check your Junk/Spam folders as these automatically-generated emails often finish up there.

If your enrolment is unsuccessful,  you will receive an email telling you that you have been waitlisted.
