According to the 2022 SDG index report, Australia’s sustainable development performance has stagnated or even started to decline.

This lack of progress is frustrating for a lot of young people and so there is cautious optimism brewing given the recent election of a Labor Government. 

This event aims to explore what this Labor Government will really mean for social, economic and environmental sustainability in this country.

For two nights in a row (22nd and 23rd of August) hear from Greens MPs and ask them questions about what they think the new Labor government means for sustainable development in Australia.
