Together we will find a way to transition towards a more equitable, just Australia.

Co-presented by the Sydney Peace Foundation and Sydney Environment Institute, supported by Greenpeace, ActionAid, SEED and 350.org.

Sometimes it is easy to forget that every day, people across the world are already feeling the impacts of the climate crisis. Science puts us on an unyielding deadline: this is the crucial decade to get our act together.

World-renowned journalist and 2016 Sydney Peace Prize winner Naomi Klein discusses capitalism, climate justice and the future. Hear the courageous and inspiring stories from Murrawah Johnson about the Wangan and Jagalingou people’s struggle to stop India’s Adani from opening Australia’s biggest coal mine in history, and Maria Tiimon Chi-Fang who is seeing her beloved Kiribati disappear below the sea level.

In a panel moderated by Lenore Taylor (The Guardian), Naomi Klein, Murrawah Johnson, Maria Tiimon Chi-Fang, Nadine Flood (National Secretary, CPSU) and Shen Narayanasami (Human Rights Campaign Director, GetUp!) will discuss the need for transition to a post-carbon Australia, and how we get to a world that cares for people and planet.

Together we will find a way to transition away from fossil fuels, towards a more equitable, just Australia that is based on caring for each other and the planet.

Tickets via City Recital Hall. Full price $17.50, concession $12.50
