Welcome to the Humanists Victoria events portal. In our effort to help create a better society, Humanists get actively engaged in social and political action.
We conduct monthly public lectures on a variety of topics and monthly member discussion meetings. The discussions start at 11:00 am on the second Sunday of each month and are held in Hawthorn East, Victoria. For an introduction, contact Stephen Stuart on (03) 9857 8318 or at email@example.com
We also liaise and work co-operatively with many kindred organizations. In this section, you can find upcoming events on a range of issues directly and indirectly related to the humanist cause.
Note: Due to Covid-19 this event has been cancelled and will be rescheduled when it is to do so when it is deemed safe to all members.
Climate Emergency: Facing Extinction and What to Do About It
Humanists Victoria Monthly Public Lecture
As the earth heats up and tipping points pass, scientists are warning we risk the collapse of ecosystems and the deaths of billions of people. But our political system is broken, the mainstream media are not fully informing us about the dangers we face and our leaders are failing to protect us. It’s time to work together to move society into emergency mode and initiate the unprecedented speed and scale of change required to restore a safe climate.
Bio: Jane Morton helped bring the Extinction Rebellion to Australia and led the campaign that resulted in the first council in the world declaring a climate emergency. A clinical psychologist by profession, Jane went into semi-retirement six years ago to focus her efforts on campaigning on the climate emergency. She is the author of Don’t Mention the Emergency?, a ground-breaking booklet on climate messaging.
