About this event

UNSW Law & Justice invites you to join this dynamic panel discussion on the topic of Advancing Justice in a warming world.

Half the people in the world live in places highly vulnerable to the impacts of climate change. In Australia, too, intensifying bushfires, cyclones, droughts, floods and rising seas are making life increasingly precarious for millions of people. The threat multiplier of climate change raises important issues of justice.

How can we best support people put at risk by disasters and other climate change impacts? What role can leaders, lawyers and ordinary people play in advancing climate justice? What needs to happen now to protect the most vulnerable, today and into the future?

Joining the conversation:

  • Scientia Professor Jane McAdam AO is Director of the Kaldor Centre for International Refugee Law and a Scientia Professor at UNSW Law & Justice.
  • Greg Mullins AO AFSM is the former Commissioner of NSW Fire and Rescue and the author of Firestorm (Penguin, 2021).
  • Fleur Ramsay is the Special Counsel for the International Program at the Environmental Defenders Office in Sydney.
  • Oliver Toohey (LLM 2009) is the International Climate Program Manager at the Worldwide Fund for Nature (WWF).
