Climate Justice: Working Together for a More Equitable and Sustainable Future

The frequency of natural disasters is increasing in Australia and this year’s Rosalie Rendu forum will tackle the issue of climate injustice.

Over the last few years, our communities have seen our climate change dramatically, with more frequent and severe weather events including devastating floods, droughts, bushfires, and heatwaves. Whenever such an event occurs, marginalised people and communities are often impacted the most.

This October, the annual Rosalie Rendu Forum will feature academic experts and those who’ve lived through recent disasters to discuss what’s needed to avoid the worst injustices of climate change, and better protect those most likely to feel its impact.

In honour of Rosalie Rendu’s legacy, we are excited to announce our female led panel, including:

  • Professor Anne Poelina – Nyikina Warrwa Traditional Custodian, Chair of Indigenous Studies and Senior Research Fellow, Nulungu Institute, University of Notre Dame
  • Dr Kim Loo – NSW Chair, Doctors for the Environment
  • Suzanne Nichols – St Vincent de Paul Society NSW Conference President, Lismore
  • Kellie Caught – Program Director of Climate and Energy, Australian Council of Social Services (ACOSS)

Bookings are essential for the Rosalie Rendu Forum, and early RSVP is recommended. Interested members can register at rosalierendu2022.eventbrite.com.au and should do so by Tuesday 18 October. For those seeking more information, you can either send an email to social.justice@vinnies.org.au or call (02) 4032 3545.
