This will give you the chance to connect with people from diverse work backgrounds and disciplines, all of who have a shared concern for climate justice.


Panel discussion 6:30pm - 8:00pm

This diverse panel of representatives will explore climate justice from a range of perspectives, recognising that climate change threatens to undermine social and economic progress across our region. The breadth of social justice issues will be highlighted, provoking discussion about the scale of institutional change required to move our region forward.
