Social Sciences Stars 2019 Sydney – Reshaping Public Conversation on Climate Change

Venue: Meeting Room, Customs House Library, 31 Alfred Street, Sydney Sydney, NSW, Australia

Start Date: Wed 11 Sep 2019 Start Time: 1600

End Date: Wed 11 Sep 2019 End Time: 1700

The unprecedented impact of unmitigated climate change will reshape political, economic, social, cultural, scientific and environmental issues and decision-making. According to CSIRO’s State of the Climate 2018 report, the variability and changes in Australia’s climate will affect many Australians, particularly the changes associated with increases in the frequency or intensity of heat events, fire weather and drought, and Australia will need to plan for and adapt to some level of climate change. Debate on climate policy will be essential for driving change and this event will provide a chance for delegates to become directly involved in the conversation.  

Join Dr Louise Crabtree and Professor Paul James from Western Sydney University and Dr Jonathan Symons from Macquarie University as they frame the discussion around the critical role of effective climate policy, the nature of social and political institutions in addressing the impact, and reshaping public conversation on climate change. This stimulating conversation will be moderated by Associate Professor Juan Francisco Salazar from Western Sydney University.

Please join us for refreshments following the panel discussion.
