2019 Sydney Environmental Humanities Lecture Series

The Sydney Environmental Humanities Lecture series will be running again in 2019.

Environmental change is happening all around us, and yet voices differ over its causes and consequences. At the same time, our human activity is playing an increasingly significant role in shaping the earth and its future possibilities.
