2022 Red Cross Oration

Are you worried about the future of our world?

There’s a lot to think about; the increase in mental health presentations, war in the Ukraine, recent floods, the implications of global warming and climate change…  a global pandemic.

It’s a lot.

Many voices are engaging in emerging issues and speaking-up for the environment, gender equality and international justice.  Yet, research suggests modern communities are experiencing fragmentation, social isolation, and a decline in volunteer participation.  Why is this?

Join our panellists to discuss how we can build a connected, resilient community, activating and participating in the betterment of our collective future.
