Don’t miss meeting the former Chief of Australia’s Defence Force - Admiral (Retired) Chris Barrie AC - who will discuss Climate Change & Sovereign Risk and how it will directly impact Australia & the Pacific, Bangladesh, Europe and the world. And with our two other speakers, Admiral Barrie will outline what we can do about it.

Is there a gender bias for climate action? Zara Bending, Senior Lecturer at Macquarie University and expert in International Environmental Law, believes so – and will speak on how the law might help mitigate against these risks.

Together with Prof Will Steffen, an international environment researcher from the Climate Council – who will speak about ‘tipping points’ - you will come away with ideas about how you can make a difference.
