Thursday Night Live!
6.00 - 7.30pm Thurs 8 Aug 2019

Thursday Night Live! is an evening of provocation, discussion and dialogue. 

Thursday 8 August 2019 from 6.00 - 7.30pm in the Lismore Regional Gallery Event Space

This month’s provocation is: Extinction is forever - can we stop the clock on the crisis?

The trajectory seems set for further species loss and major disruption to life as we know it, but is there anything we can do to stop the decline in both species diversity, and the dire predictions of warming due to Anthropogenic climate change?

Recent research published in the highly respected journal ‘Science’ highlights tree planting as the number one action people can take to mitigate climate change and the Extinction Rebellion has risen. Will that be enough and what action can we take? Come and join us for this important conversation.

Joining Facilitator Dr Hanabeth Luke – Lecturer School of Environment Science and Engineering, Southern Cross University
for this important conversation on the panel we welcome Professor Peter Harrison – Director of the Marine Ecology Research Centre, Southern Cross University; Sue Higginson – Public Interest Environmental Law Expert and former CEO of Environmental Defenders Organisation (NSW); with Ruth Rosenhek – Deep Ecologist and Facilitator of Extinction Rebellion Lismore.

A free event but bookings required
