Guest speakers, Dr Aysin Dedekorkut-Howes, Climate Change Adaptation, Senior Lecturer of Urban and Environmental Planning at the Griffith School of Engineering and Built Environment, Dr Michelle Maloney, National Convenor with Australian Earth Laws Aliance (AELA), and Clare Silcock, Energy Strategist with the Queensland Conservation Council. Moderated by Dr Keith Treschman.
Climate change action has to be sustainable for the long term and not merely meet short-term targets. It also needs to be resilient over time. It will rely on transformative changes in the way the public and private sectors form policies. Consumers also need to be guided in ways of adopting sustainable behaviours to lower emissions. How can leaders in the climate and environmental science space influence decision makers and educate a new generation of young leaders?
You have 60 minutes to ask questions of the experts on the urban planning codes in regard to sea level change, training of future leaders, environmental laws, and conservation action.
Enjoy light refreshments and networking before settling in for an informed conversation on a topic of interest to us all.
