We’ve been here before - An Evening in Conversation with Nyoongar Elder Dr Noel Nannup and Professor Fiona Stanley, with Professor Carmen Lawrence as MC.

We find ourselves at a crossroads.

'Business as usual' is no longer sufficient to address the interconnected crises of rising inequality, climate change and an economic system that serves a few at the expense of people and planet.

However, this isn't the first time we have faced such complex issues.

We have been here before, and luckily for us that means there is much to learn from the past - from ancient Aboriginal Culture that has witnessed and adapted to climate change, to contemporary challenges and victories in the fields of public health, politics and social change.

We invite you to join Professor Fiona Stanley AC (the person not the building), Dr Noel Nannup (NAIDOC Western Australian Elder of the Year) and former WA Premier Professor Carmen Lawrence, for a fascinating discussion exploring what we can learn from the past - and how we can rise to the challenges of our time for a better future.

Tickets: $40 ($25 concession; $60 solidarity)

This event is a fundraiser for Its Up to Us, a project of the Be the Change foundation.

It's Up to Us funds Jaime Yallup Farrant to work as an independent climate justice campaigner, and has done since November 2013. Jaime works to accelerate our transition toward a just future and safe climate for all - by building the capacity, effectiveness and diversity of the local climate and social justice movements in WA.
