The World Health Organisation has declared the COVID-19 virus a pandemic that risks the health, safety and wellbeing of the most vulnerable people in our community. We take this risk very seriously, so the National Trust has cancelled or postponed all events until 30 June 2020. This event has been postponed until October/ November 2020.
The debate is fierce on whether this topic is relevant for heritage, but with heritage properties in direct threat of bushfires throughout the summer, others impacted by drought, and millions of hectares of natural heritage destroyed – it seems it’s time for us to talk about climate change.
Trust Talks is the National Trust’s forum for conversation, debate and knowledge sharing on key issues related to heritage. Our first Trust Talks for 2020 is on climate change and will be officially opened by the Hon. Matt Kean, Minister for Energy and the Environment and features keynote speaker, Professor John Hewson from ANU’s Climate Change Institute and Crawford School of Public Policy.
Professor Hewson will be joined on the stage by expert panellists including Macquarie University’s Professor Lesley Hughes who is also a Councillor at the Climate Change Council and the National Trust (NSW)’s Director, Conservation, Graham Quint.
Our M.C. for this event will be Fenella Kernebone.
Ticket price includes entry plus wine and canapes on arrival.
