Melbourne Connect Presents: Advancing Environmental Sustainability

The increased discussion on climate change and environmental sustainability has never been more emphasised amongst the wider public than now. As we become more educated on how our world is being impacted, what emerging evidence-based research initiatives are addressing looming environmental crises?


You’re invited to join a free panel discussion that delves into the advancement of environmental sustainability and important progress being made in this space. What progress are we making in regards to our personal efforts? What is being put in place from a policy perspective to address our upcoming challenges? What local/ global inventions are we likely to see to address these concerns?
