Date released: May 16 2019

Dr Edward Cameron is presenting an EPA Climate Change Lecture at the Mansion House on Friday evening (17 May 2019) as part of the National Dialogue on Climate Action.  In this public lecture, Dr Cameron will discuss the importance of climate leadership as we transition to a low carbon, climate resilient and inclusive world.

Laura Burke, EPA Director General said,

“Strong leadership is essential for tackling the challenge of climate change. This involves taking hard decisions to put us on the right trajectory to meet our emission reductions obligations and build resilience to the inevitable impacts of a changing climate. It also entails being able to seize the opportunities that should arise during the transition.

“Dr Cameron is a climate specialist with many years of experience in the areas of climate change and human rights. We are looking forward to hearing Dr Cameron’s vision for climate leadership as we transition to a more sustainable future, from his experience with the World Resources Institute and elsewhere.”

The Climate Change Lecture is being held in the Round Room at the Mansion House. The event will also be live streamed here.
