Introduction to Raising Peace – Welcome To Country

It is time to raise the profile of peace!
The current turmoil in international affairs and the climate crisis pose unprecedented risks and dangers. The need for open discussion about the need for peace, and ways to achieve it, has never been greater. A panel of speakers will set the tone for ten days of events that will cover the many topics that arise when the word ‘peace’ is mentioned.
Aunty Rhonda Dixon-Grovenor, a Darug/Yuin Elder, academic, cultural activist and spokesperson for environmental social justice and human rights issues will deliver the Welcome to Country.
Keith Suter (‘Global Directions’ think-tank) will moderate the session.
David Shoebrdge (MLC, The Greens) will speak about Peace, Justice and Human rights
Alison Broinowski (Author and ex-diplomat) will speak about ‘War Powers’ legislation
David Brophy (Sydney University) will speak about Australia/China relations
Rita Warleigh (IVP) will talk about International Volunteers for Peace and Raising Peace
