Launch of conversations in Soil, Soul and Society

Launched in August, the Sustainability Institute has held a series of interesting talks where friends, students, alumni and members of staff have the opportunity to network and engage with conversations in soil, soul and society.

It was a warm spring evening when 60 friends and colleagues gathered on the guesthouse stop for wine and cheese before the screening of the Food (R)evolutions mini documentaries. Prof. Mark Swilling opened the series with an introduction highlighting different ways of knowing in the midst of global transitions and change - a message reiterated by the documentaries. Following the film screening was a discussion with the curator, Luke Metelerkamp who heads up SI’s Food Systems team, and the filmmaker, Stephen McDonald. Watch the documentaries and see more about upcoming exhibitions here.

Following on this success a second event was held with another full house with long-time colleague and friend of the SI Prof. Malcolm McIntosh. With the launch of his new book 'Thinking for th 21st Century' he calls for a new political order as an alternative to a world built on the failing system of Neoliberal Economics.
