Share Leadership in a Changing Climate - a free public forum on leadership and climate change

Event Details

A high-profile panel will discuss the complex and 'wicked' problem of climate change and leadership at a free public forum presented by the Environment Institute and the Leaders Institute of South Australia.

The panellists debating 'Leadership in a Changing Climate' are:

  • Senator Penny Wong—Minister for Finance and Deregulation
  • Andrew Stock—Director, Executive Projects, Origin Energy Ltd
  • David Klingberg AO—Chairman, Centrex Metals
  • Right Hon. Stephen Yarwood—Lord Mayor of Adelaide
  • Prof. Mike Young—Executive Director, University of Adelaide’s Environment Institute
  • David Knox, Chief Executive Officer and Managing Director
    Santos Limited

Public commentator Annabel Crabb will be the Master of Ceremonies.

Currently, we struggle to get our climate change discussion past immediate hip-pocket lines. In our public debates it is difficult to talk about the sort of future we want for ourselves, our families, our communities, Australia and globally. 

This forum will tackle the issue head on.What type of leadership is required? What does it take to create and manage significant and complex change? And could it be that we're actually seeing a lot of this leadership but missing the wood for the trees?

The forum is not a debate on the science of climate change. We have more than enough knowledge about human impact to act.  However, given most people in our community accept the science but the debate about how best to act can seem viciously polarised and stuck, what should our leaders do? 

Book now! This will be a very popular event and there are limited places despite the selected venue. 

We hope to see you Thursday, 29 September, 6-7:30pm at the Masonic Hall, 254 North Terrace, Adelaide.

This event is being held as a partnership between the Environment Institute and the Leaders Institute of South Australia
