Peace by peaceful means? Entanglements of peace and justice.

The United Nations set 17 “Sustainable Development Goals” as a blueprint to achieve a better and more sustainable future for all. Come along to be led by some of Tasmania’s local thinkers in deliberating over what needs to happen today to achieve these goals by 2030.

In this month's Sustainability in the Pub, we put the UN Sustainable Development Goal, 'Peace, Justice and Strong Institutions' under a Tasmanian spotlight.  What does peace mean from the perspectives of Tasmanian's today?  Is it an aspiration, a lived reality, or an impossibility, particularly in contexts and communities where justice may seem far from reach?

Join us as we explore the entanglements of peace and justice, and imagineer the means for achieving peace for all.

On the panel:

  • Distinguished Professor Maggie Walter, Sociology, University of Tasmania
  • Mr Cedrick Kayembe Mulumba, Former Chair, Australian Youth Forum Steering Committee
  • Dr Ann Joselynn Baltra-Ulloa, Social Work, University of Tasmania

Led in conversation by Dr Mary Ann Hunter (Education, University of Tasmania)
