The People's Assembly: Sustainable Solutions for Victims of Sea Level Rise

Warming seas, melting glaciers and retreating ocean ice are causing sea levels to rise. Rising sea levels will combine with other climate change impacts to threaten people’s livelihoods.

 

In August 2008, Green Cross Australia will enlist a group of everyday Australians to help us decide what action our country should take to prepare for sea level rise and population displacement.

 

The National People’s Assembly will be an event that will stimulate public debate and give ordinary citizens a chance to directly affect the policies of the Australian Government. 


The event is structured like a European style 'consensus conference' which is a proven method of participatory democracy.

 

The citizens' panel will deliver a ‘verdict’ on how Australia should tackle this important issue. There will be recommendations for business leaders, scientists and policy makers.

 

The National People's Assembly will be open to the public as part of the Riverfestival and is hosted by Griffith University

 

More information on obtaining free tickets will be available closer to the date.

When:  29 August 2008 - 30 August 2008

Time:  9.00am-5.00pm

Where:  State Library of Queensland, South Bank
