Christine Milne at Byron Writers Fest

I'm looking forward to hearing former Australian Greens leader Christine Milne at the Byron Writers Festival next month.

I was happy to sponsor Christine's appearance for an In Conversation session with Margaret Throsby on the Saturday morning of the festival, to learn more about her focus on serious legislative action on global warming, advocacy for human rights and the restoration of our democracy.

She is also appearing as a panel member in a session entitled How to Buy less Stuff and Save the World.

In another session, called Keeping the Blue Planet Green, she is joined by Joelle Gergis, author of Sunburnt Country: The History and Future of Climate Change in Australia, which highlights the impact of a warming planet on Australian lifestyles and ecosystems, and David Ritter, the CEO of Greenpeace Australia Pacific, whose book The Coal Truth: The Fight to Stop Adani, defeat the big polluters and reclaim our democracy provides a timely and colourful contribution to the crucial topic of the future of the coal industry in Australia. 

See you there!
