Australian Fabians invites you to our Winter 2019 event, a discussion panel to explore new and old Left ideas and how we can unite in hope for a fairer world.
The theme of the discussion is: The unity of Labo(u)r is the HOPE of the world.
Fun fact - this was the ALP slogan for many years!
Following on from the federal election, conversations are swirling about the Future of Work in an ecomomy and society disrupted by automation as well as climate change - how can we tackle these challenges and ensure a Just Transition for everyone?
Date: Sat 27th July 2019
Venue: Dickson Tradies
We are excited to have our guests speakers bring their insights and ideas to share with us.
- Jen Raynor is the author of 'Blue Collar Frayed: Working Men in Tomorrow’s Economy' in which she argues that there can be blue-collar jobs in our future economy. In fact, we can’t keep building a fair and prosperous Australia without them. This book is essential reading for anyone that wants to understand these changes.
- Steven Hail is the author of 'Economics for Sustainable Prosperity' in which he builds the case for a permanent and inclusive job guarantee and an alternative, more realistic and more useful set of economic foundations, which could deliver the opportunity of a decent quality of life with dignity to all.
- Frank Bongiorno is an Australian historian, academic and author. He is a Professor of History at the Australian National University, and has been head of the university's history department since 2018
