How we’re using science to fix the mess we’ve made.

From introduced invasive species to pollution and climate change, we’re now facing a lot of issues that society has created itself. This Dean’s Lecture will explore scientific solutions to anthropogenic problems, with speeches including:

  • Saving urban platypus with smart rainwater tanks (& their owners!)
  • Are toad-smart quolls the key to saving a species?
  • Can we save our coral reefs? Building a toolbox for when greenhouse gas mitigation isn’t enough.
  • Identifying unknown problem chemicals in the environment

These will be followed by a Q&A panel with all speakers.

This lecture will be hosted online and in person. Please select your preferred option when booking tickets.
