We are completely honoured to have award winning investigative journalist Nick McKenzie chatting with Clive Hamilton.

Clive Hamilton wanted to make a difference in the world. In his unique memoir, Provocateur, Hamilton shows us why questioning the status quo matters, how powerful arguments can change the country, and how the life of ideas in action actually works. From why climate change matters and how we understand ourselves as Australians to the dangers posed to us by the new authoritarianism – all this and more has been shaped, for better or for worse, by public researchers and writers such as Hamilton.

This event is free to attend but bookings are essential.
