About this Event

Update Friday 13 March

In view of the latest developments concerning the spread of COVID-19, Sydney Environment Institute has decided to suspended all events until further notice.

The experts knew that catastrophic fire conditions were coming. What else do we know is coming and how can we be ready? How can we become as resilient as possible?

Join us for the first instalment of the Australia on Fire series, an in-depth look into the reactions, rehabilitation and responses to the increasingly critical fire seasons ahead.

In the aftermath of the most catastrophic fire season on record, where more than a fifth of the country’s forests were destroyed, now is the time to prepare ourselves both physically and mentally for the warming future ahead of us.

David Ritter, Greenpeace Australia Pacific CEO, sits down with a diverse collection of panellists ranging from community to industry to politics to academics, to discuss the urgent need to act, and to act now. Whilst the nation mourns, the harsh reality of a worsening climate must be confronted through a united front of collective action from all members of society.

This series is convened by David Ritter and Michelle St Anne, Deputy Director SEI.

Speakers:

The Venerable Rod Bower, Australian Anglican priest and social activist

Hannah Della Bosca, Sydney Environment Institute

Dr John Falzon, Per Capita

Cassandra Goldie, Australian Council of Social Service

Kurt Iveson, Associate Professor at the School of Geosciences at the University of Sydney

David Ritter (Chair), Greenpeace Australia Pacific CEO
