2050

26 August 2016

ITR Auditorium


The year 2050 is the deadline target for New Zealand's greenhouse gas emissions by 50 per cent from 1990 levels. In the meantime, the ice caps are melting and our planet is facing mass migrations and war. World-renowned environmentalist Tim Flannery, indigenous rights and climate change activist Shelia Watt-Cloutier, Mai Chen, Chair of Superdiversity Centre for Law, Policy and Business, and Bronwyn Hayward, Director of the Sustainable Citizenship and Civic Imagination research group, discuss the environment, indigenous rights, ethnic diversity and citizenship, to paint a picture of where we will be in 2050.

Chaired by Kim Hill.
