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 Bayside 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.
Presented in partnership with Bayside City Council and sponsored by UNSW School of Humanities and Languages and the UNSW Global Water Institute
