The devastating effects of the 2019-2020 bushfires saw Australian communities ravaged by the impacts of climate change. Many viewed the tragedy as a long overdue wake-up call, and one that should spur rapid action to address the ecological challenges facing us. But as the ash settles, what will the next steps for climate policy look like in an Australia reeling from a catastrophic fire season?

In this not to be missed conversation, hear from UTS industry professor Bob Carr who is joined by Independent MP for Warringah, Zali Steggall OAM, elected in 2019 on a platform of pursuing national climate action. Zali is joined by Martijn Wilder, a world leader in climate law and sustainable investing who believes Australia could lead the way in the race to decarbonise.
