Poverty amid Plenty: Exploring ideas for a more equitable and sustainable world
Monday 30 April, 6.30-8pm
City Recital Hall, Angel Place
Is a more equitable and sustainable world possible? If so, how do we achieve it? Paul Gilding, author of The Great Disruption, has posed this question to audiences around the world. Now it’s Sydney’s turn.
As a society we continue exploiting finite resources to fuel our consumptive ways, despite the ecological ramifications. At the same time government and personal debt is often the foundation for this growth, which only adds to the instability. Paul will address this looming crisis and invite some of the best minds in the business to share their ideas on how to create a more resilient and sustainable future for all.
The stellar line-up includes our favourite collaborative consumption guru Rachel Botsman; Sam Mclean, Deputy National Director at GetUp!; Ben Waters, Director of GE’s ecomagination; Ross Gittins, Economics Editor at The Sydney Morning Herald and our very own Lord Mayor, Clover Moore MP.
Tickets are sold out, but we’re told that if you turn up at 6.20pm on the night, you’re bound to get a seat when all uncollected tickets are rereleased.
