Dr Marilyn Palmer – CCE Speaker Series

Wednesday 8th May, 5pm

Power, the language of disasters and what it means for action.

Dr Marilyn Palmer was a foundation member of the Social Work Program at Edith Cowan University, actively involved in researching and teaching in the areas of ecosocial work, domestic violence, ecojustice activism, and transformative leadership in disaster recovery.  Since formally retiring in 2022, Marilyn has continued her engagement with the university through tutoring and supporting research on cultural humility, and ecological grief and loss.  Beyond the university, she practices activism through the Alongside Women’s Action Group weekly vigil in Bunbury, as a member of the Waratah Management Committee, and as an active member of Greens WA. 

Join us for what we are certain will be a thought provoking and motivating conversation, drawing on the deep-thinking that Marilyn is engaged with regarding how we concieve of, communicate and teach about climate change.

‘Seize the Decade’

The Climate Council have published their ‘Seize the Decade’ Report – a plan ‘to empower Australian communities and cut climate pollution by 75 percent this decade.’ They’ve put in the leg-work and shown us how we can get it done – explained in detail in this one-hour webinar:

Now we just have to do it! So how do we ensure that we, Australian people and our future generations, have the knowledge and skills to enact this plan? Why, through considered enactment of Climate Change Education, of course! Add your voice to the Australian Climate Change Education Action Plan, and join the conversation, via our Speaker Series, as we work to ensure that all Australians, now and into the future, are afforded the education that we, as a nation, require to address and adapt to our rapidly changing climate.

Prof. Tim Flannery launches the CCE Speaker Series

We were thrilled to have Prof. Tim Flannery, Chief Councillor at the Climate Council, launch the Australian Climate Change Education Speaker Series, on Wednesday, 6th March, 4pm – 5pm.

A huge thank you to Tim, and to all our attendees, with wonderful questions, for making the first event in our Speaker Series such a success. We covered a lot of ground, and kept returning to issues of equity and enablement. As Tim put it “I’m not quite sure how we as a society are going to negotiate [the energy transition and climate action] unless we renegotiate that fundamental question of fairness and equity.” A pertinent observation, especially in light of the recent publication of the Universities Accord, with a focus on equity and skills deficits, and in the context of the profoundly challenged public education system, the housing crisis, and cost-of-living pressures.
