Networking event 5:30pm – 6:30pm

Join us from 5:30pm for complimentary carbon neutral Ross Hill Wines, Red Hill Brewery beer and refreshments at this pre-panel networking event. This will give you the chance to connect with people from diverse work backgrounds and disciplines, all of who have a shared concern for climate change and the impact it has on generational equality.


Panel discussion 6:30pm – 8:00pm

The actions of successive generations have led the world to a point of dangerous greenhouse gas concentrations. As global temperatures creep ever higher, young generations are feeling the pressure, and opportunities, of this inheritance. Our region is particularly susceptible to the first and worst impacts of climate change: from droughts in Australia to increasingly powerful cyclones that wreak destruction across the Pacific Islands. How can each generation of Australians contribute to national and regional climate action, and help avoid climate-driven intergenerational inequalities?

This event will look for common ground between five generations by exploring the values, incentives and circumstances that define how we relate to climate change. Five panelists will gently highlight the need for continuous dialogue and compromise.

**We want to ensure price does not exclude people from this important discussion. If you seek concession pricing for yourself or a group, please contact panels@climates.org.au briefly outlining your circumstances, thanks.**
