Principal speaker

With 2014 officially declared the hottest year on record we are once again reminded that climate change is not only something we must be planning for but we must be taking action on now. Join us for an evening of wide ranging discussion drawing upon expertise in climate change policy, particularly with respect to the upcoming UNFCCC Paris Conference, and how Australia is adapting to a changing climate at local and state levels of Government:

  • Professor Brendan Mackey, Director of Griffith University’s Climate Change Response Program
  • Professor Jean Palutikof, Director of National Climate Change Adaptation Research Facility
  • Mr John Lane, Director of Environmental Planning, Department of Environment and Heritage Protection, Queensland Government
