Event description

Description

Australia's unprecedented run of economic growth has failed to deliver a more stable or harmonious society. Individualism is rampant. Income inequality is growing. Public education is under-resourced. The gender revolution is stalling. We no longer trust our major institutions or our political leaders. We are more socially fragmented, more anxious, more depressed, more overweight, more medicated, deeper in debt and increasingly addicted - whether to our digital devices, drugs, pornography or 'stuff'. Yet renowned social researcher Hugh Mackay remains optimistic about Australia’s future, starting with the renewal of local neighborhoods and communities. Hugh will explore what he regards as the most critical social issue facing Australia – our loss of compassion and the threat to social cohesion.

Copies of 'Australia Reimagined' will be available for sale on the day through Farrells Bookshop.
