About this Event

" There has never been more clarity on what needs to be done, by whom, and within what timeframe to prevent a climate catastrophe" — Selwin Hart, Special Adviser and UN Assistant Secretary General for Climate Action

The solutions exist.

The Australia Institute’s 2023 climate integrity summit established the principles that must sit at the heart of policymaking to ensure it is robust, grounded in truth and uncorrupted in all senses of the word. With these principles the opportunity exists for Australia to genuinely drive decarbonisation and clean investment, both in Australia and abroad.

The solutions exist. The Australia Institute’s 2024 Climate Integrity Summit will make it clear what they are and how to implement them.

Key speakers include:

  • Hon Andrew Leigh MP, Assistant Minister for Competition, Charities, Treasury and Employment
  • Senator Larissa Waters, Australian Greens Leader in the Senate and Senator for Queensland
  • Dr Monique Ryan MP, Independent Member for Kooyong
  • Dr Sophie Scamps MP, Independent Member for Mackellar
  • Bernie Fraser, Former Governor of the Reserve Bank of Australia
  • Mark Wootton, Farmer and Environmental Steward, Jigsaw Farms
  • Yuki Tanabe, Program Director, Japan Center for a Sustainable Environment and Society

  • Polly Hemming, Director, Climate & Energy Program, the Australia Institute
  • Dr Richard Denniss, Executive Director, the Australia Institute

And more speakers to be announced.

There is a window, albeit a rapidly closing one, for the world to stay within the limits of 1.5°C of global warming. To have any chance of achieving this, we, as a global community must dramatically and urgently change course.

As the world’s 13th largest economy and the world’s third largest fossil fuel exporter, Australia has a special responsibility to not only demonstrate courage and leadership on climate at home, but to use our wealth and creativity to help our trading partners, regional neighbours and those most vulnerable to the climate crisis to respond accordingly.
