Climactic Live | 2020 Nancy Hillier Memorial Lecture

"The Long View on Environmental and Social Justice for Botany Bay: Interdisciplinary partnerships between UNSW and the community"

This year's Hillier lecture will provide an opportunity to reflect on the past, present, and future of work on environmental and social justice issues in and around Botany Bay from the perspectives of researchers with the University of New South Wales.

While UNSW and Council are partners in presenting the annual Hillier lecture, the interrelations between the communities of Botany Bay and the University are much deeper.This year's lecture will take the form of a round-table reflecting upon the broader lessons we can learn from the work done at UNSW addressing environmental, social, policy, water, planning, legal and urban issues around Botany Bay, and what these lessons might mean for new and existing interdisciplinary partnerships with Botany Bay's communities.

Ian Tyrrell - Emeritus Professor, Environmental Historian. Author of "River Dreams: The people and landscape of the Cooks River" (2018)
