Energy in SA? Giles Parkinson Explains

Hosted by Conservation SA

Elon Musk? Snowy Hydro 2.0? Jay vs Josh? World's biggest battery? Is gas dead?

We've had a truly remarkable week of energy news in SA. Are you elated? Worried? Or just a little confused?

Find out from one of Australia's leading and most forthright energy commentators what's really going on — and why there's much cause for optimism.

With as much punch as an Elon Musk battery tweet but without the awkwardness of the Jay Weatherill/Josh Frydenberg stoush, Giles will explain all. 

Tickets are just $5 to cover our costs, but if you would like to see more of these kind of events in Adelaide, you might like to chip in something extra here. Thanks for your support!

Due to overwhelming demand, we're moving to a bigger venue! 

After a huge response, this event has been relocated to the Bragg Lecture Theatre at University of Adelaide North Terrace campus. For directions, click here to visit the Adelaide Uni website or download a map here.

Environmental Law Seminar

Hosted by Gabrielle Bond

What role does the community have in environmental decision making?

Access and participation by citizens in decision making is at the heart of modern policy and law making. Typical areas of public participation include strategic planning, community forums, commenting on specific proposals, formal submissions or representations, access to information, appeals and civil enforcement. However the EDO is concerned that many aspects of environmental law and policy do not prioritise public participation rights. 

The EDO will be launching its recent audit of public participation provisions in South Australian legislation which directly and indirectly impact on environmental decision making. The report identifies deficiencies and makes recommendations for law reform. We will also be presenting case studies on two particular areas of regulation namely planning and mining.

Speakers include EDO staff solicitor Melissa Ballantyne, Alison Brookman (Wallmans Solicitor) and Associate Professor Karen Bubna-Litic (University of SA).

World Environment Fair

Hosted by Brian Haddy

In the lead up to World Environment Day on 5 June 2017, the inaugural World Environment Fair (WEF) on the weekend of 3-4 June brings together the community to celebrate the environment. It provides a unique opportunity to hear from environment advocates, support brands and businesses that share their values, and to take home ideas to help safeguard our environment.

One of the most exciting events of 2017, WEF will host a variety of entertainers, keynote speakers and feature an impressive line-up of more than 50 exhibitors. Australia’s largest nature play area, a wildlife interactive display garden, water and energy saving ideas, talks and debates on issues concerning the environment and conservation will be held across a jammed packed weekend.

WEF will be held at the Adelaide Showground’s Goyder and Jubilee Pavilions and feature two entertainment stages, a bush cafe, reptile and native displays, giant interactive EnviroPledge Wall, and a stack of activities for the whole family.

Environment and conservation community organizations are invited to apply for a FREE booth at the event, on the condition that they offer some form of hands-on activity.
