Hope vs the Climate Crisis

View descriptionShare

When it comes to the climate, how can we replace despair with optimism, ambition and purpose, even as experts warn that we are fast running out of time?

A panel of the country's leading thinkers on the climate crisis consider how climate fatalism can be as harmful as denialism and why hope might be our greatest tool in mitigating environmental catastrophe. Featuring award-winning climate scientist Joëlle Gergis (Humanity's Moment), First Nations environmental justice campaigner Tishiko King and Walkley Award–winning writer Jeff Sparrow (Crimes Against Nature), in conversation with Environment Reporter at The Age Miki Perkins.

This event was proudly supported by the Department of Environment, Land, Water and Planning
