Politics in the Pub: Scott Ludlam
After the upheaval of the pandemic, the Australia Institute is delighted to announce Politics in the Pub is back and at a brand new venue: Verity Lane Market!
Please join us for a special event with Scott Ludlam, former Greens Senator and Deputy Leader, to talk about his new book Full Circle.
In Full Circle, Scott Ludlam draws on his unique experience as senator and activist to capture our world on a precipice and explore what comes next.
We are now in the Anthropocene – humans are changing the earth’s climate irreversibly, and political, human and natural systems are on the cusp of collapse.
One way or another, we are headed for radical change.
Ludlam seeks new ways to make our systems humane, regenerative and more in tune with nature. He travels the globe to see what happens when little people stand up to corporations and tyrants. He takes the reader on a journey through time to discover the underlying patterns of life. And he finds that we are at a unique moment when billions of tiny actions by individuals and small groups are coalescing into one great movement that could transform history.
Bringing together a wealth of new ideas, Full Circle outlines a new ecological politics. It is a visionary book for our wild times.
Scott Ludlam will be in conversation with Ebony Bennett, deputy director of the Australia Institute. Copies of the book will be available to purchase and signed by Scott Ludlam on the night.
