Social researcher and bestselling author of 19 books, Hugh MacKay AO, will be present the Ralph Summny annual lecture at the Civic Memorial Hall, July 20 from 7pm.
In his latest book Australia Reimagined Mackay suggests ways in which we can rethink how we live, the values that inform our relationships – in fact, everything we think and do. He argues that we are at our best when we cooperate, care for and support each other, when we do things for others rather than ourselves, when we privilege the social over the economic.
Organisers say MacKay will delve into the social and cultural changes reshaping Australia and our local community.
Organised by the Ngara Institute, the night will also include awards for Activist of the Year, which will be presented to The Climate Council’s Will Steffen and Lesley Hughes.
Early bird tickets available online.
