Event description
Six panellists share their views on the social justice impact of climate change and what should be done about it.

About this Event

In 2007 Kevin Rudd said that climate change was such an enormous challenge for governments across the world that in this country it should already be ‘beyond politics’. More than ten years later, our national and global response remains woefully inadequate, and we are being called to action by those who will have to live with the consequences and will feel the full force of the impacts.

Failing to curb the human contribution to climate change is an injustice because those who have done least to bring it about will be hurt most:

  • Children and young people everywhere
  • Our Pacific neighbours and other vulnerable people
  • All creatures of the land, the air and the oceans

The Rev’d Alex Sangster of Fairfield Uniting Church will moderate a panel and audience discussion. The panel includes

Dr John Hewson, Economist and policy analyst, Australian National University

Anjali Sharma, school climate activist and strike leader

Professor David Karoly, CSIRO climate scientist, formerly with the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change

Rabbi Jonathan Keren-Black, Australian Religious Response to Climate Change

Dr Sue Ennis, Secretary, Religions for Peace Australia , dedicated to simple living

Come and be part of a discussion with this outstanding panel of people, as they share their views on this challenge and offer some insights into what can and should be done. There will also be the chance to connect with other concerned people and local organisations. The event will be recorded and shared online.

Venue is fully accessible, but no onsite parking is available.

Entry is free of charge, along with vegan and vegetarian light refreshments catered by the Asylum Seeker Resource Centre.
