Join us on November 4th as we discuss hope, action, and tackling the growing threat of climate change with Bob Brown, former leader of the Australian Greens, Senator for Queensland Larissa Waters, and Macnamara candidate and environmental lawyer Steph Hodgins-May.
We acknowledge that these events take place on the land of the Wurundjeri people of the Kulin Nation, that sovereignty was never ceded and pay our respects to Elders past, present and emerging.
