Are you buckled in? We’re on a crash course to last century!
Oops, it’s just 2014 in Australia.
Despite having made great strides toward a green and sustainable future, Australia is now heading backwards, with the coal industry influential in repealing action on global warming and renewable energy.
Coal is now a major problem for our democracy; from its economic, political and health impacts to its implications on regional and community authority and social justice.
Join us for a debate addressing the role of the Australian coal industry as we underscore their extensive influence and propose alternatives for the future.
Greenpeace and the Australia Institute invite the public, students, policy makers, and critical thinkers to contribute to an evening of panel-led discussion about the relationship between coal mining and representative government in Australia. After short introductions from each of our panellists, we will open the evening for questions and comments from audience members.
The event is hosted by Jonathan Holmes alongside speakers David Ritter, Paddy Manning, Bill McKibben (via video), Dr Richard Denniss, Dr David McKnight, Associate Professor Ruth Colagiuri & John Krey.
