I’ve got another speaking engagement coming up next week in Sydney. On Wednesday 26th November, at Customs House in Sydney I’ll be part of a panel at a forum discussing actions on climate change.
It’s organised by the Centre for Policy Development. It is one of their ‘Common Ground’ forums – a concept seeks to encourage public debates that explore areas of agreement to “shine a spotlight on areas where there is potential to move beyond false divides and tired old debates to achieve real change,” rather than have people argue pre-determined polarised positions.
The forum is timed in the lead up to the release of the federal government’s Carbon Pollution Reduction Scheme White Paper.
The main speakers will be former NSW Premier, Bob Carr and NSW Shadow Minister for Climate Change, Pru Goward, along with a panel made up of Fiona Wain (Environment Business Australia), Steve Hatfield-Dodds (former CSIRO, now Department of Climate Change), Imam Afroz Ali (from the ‘Australian Religious Response to Climate Change’ initiative) and me.
If you’re in Sydney on that date and interested in attending, you can register online at this link.
