This event has passed Get tickets

Event description

Let’s talk climate solutions.
Ross Garnaut is one of our country’s most respected and prominent climate and energy policy experts, having held senior roles in the public and private sector. He authored the landmark 2008 report for the Australian Government, The Garnaut Climate Change Review and has been an influential advisor both to State and Federal Governments.

As we strive to overcome the coronavirus challenge, we need new, practical ideas to restore Australia.

Professor Garnaut will speak to the ideas in Superpower: Australia’s low-carbon opportunity and present the themes in his forthcoming book Reset: Restoring Australia after the Pandemic Recession to show how the COVID-19 crisis offers Australia the opportunity to reset its economy and build a successful future – and why the old approaches will not work.

Join many others from Port Phillip (PECAN), Glen Eira (GECAN) and Bayside Climate Action Networks (BECAN) and the ACF community to hear Professor Garnaut outline how Australia can thrive in a low-carbon global economy, addressing key industries including energy, manufacturing, transport and agriculture.

The evening’s discussion, moderated by Petra Stock from ACF, will draw on questions from all participants.

After you’ve registered, you can submit a question for Professor Garnaut.

This event is jointly organised by the Australian Conservation Foundation, ACF Community Macnamara, Port Phillip Emergency Climate Action, Glen Eira Emergency Climate Action and Bayside Emergency Climate Action Networks.
