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.
