The Inaugural Iain McCalman Lecture

To celebrate the career of retiring Co-director Professor Iain McCalman the Sydney Environment Institute launched an annual lecture aimed at highlighting early-career researchers who, like Iain McCalman, are working across disciplinary boundaries to impact both scholarship and public discourse.

The inaugural lecture was given by Dr Frances Flanagan, whose incredible talked titled, ‘Climate Change and the New Work Order’ explored how the workforce can (and must) become a site of social and ecological renewal.
