Humanity's Movement: A Climate Scientist's Case for Hope

When climate scientist Joëlle Gergis set to work on the United Nations’ Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) Sixth Assessment Report, the research she encountered kept her up at night.

Through countless hours spent with the world’s top scientists to piece together the latest global assessment of climate change, she realised that the impacts were occurring faster than anyone had predicted.
In her latest book, Humanity’s Moment, Joëlle takes us through the science in the IPCC report with clear-eyed honesty, explaining what it means for our future, while sharing her personal reflections on bearing witness to the heartbreak of the climate emergency unfolding in real time.

But this is not a lament for a lost world. It is an inspiring reminder that human history is an endless tug-of-war for social justice. We are each a part of an eternal evolutionary force that can transform our world.

Joelle will sit down to chat about her new book and have an in-depth discussion about the latest IPCC report findings and what this means for the future. This is your chance to ask your most pressing climate question from one of the world's leading climate scientist.

This free online event is run in partnership with Ku-ring-gai Council, Lane Cove Council, Mosman Council, North Sydney Council and Willoughby Council.
