Christine Milne was the leader of the Australian Greens from 2013 to 2015. She is now the Global Greens Ambassador. Her political biography, 'An Activist Life', is the story of a high-school English teacher from northwest Tasmania who became a fiery environmental warrior, pitted against some of the most powerful business and political forces in the country.
Professor Fiona Stanley AC, FAA, FASSA is the Founding Director and Patron of the Telethon Kids Institute, Director, ANDI (Australian National Development Index) at the University of Melbourne and a spokesperson for the Climate Council, Doctors for the Environment Australia and 350.org, on the health effects of climate change. For her research on behalf of Australia's children and Aboriginal social justice, Fiona was named Australian of the Year in 2003.
The conversation will be facilitated by environmental historian, Associate Professor Andrea Gaynor, who recently co-edited 'Never Again: reflections on environmental responsibility after Roe 8' (with Peter Newman and Philip Jennings).
Following the conversation, there will be an opportunity to purchase Christine Milne's book and ask her to sign your copy.
