Climate Change: A Very Short Arc that Bends towards Justice?

October 30 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm

2019 Wednesday Lectures hosted by Raimond Gaita

Political inaction in Australia and around the world means that we now have an alarmingly short window in which to act in order to mitigate and adapt to the climate crisis. As the urgency to increases, so does the risk that the solutions we adopt reinforce or even create systems of oppression and injustice.

This lecture will examine the possible political pathways before us in the critically important upcoming decade, and how we might establish an adequate response to the climate crisis that is truly justice-centred.

Lucy Manne, CEO of 350.org, will present the sixth and final instalment of the series.

Presenters: Lucy Manne
