Bowral will host the upcoming Conversations about Tomorrow discussions. Photo: Southern Highland NewsCONVERSATIONS about Tomorrow presents an opportunity to engage in meaningful discussion about the biggest issues facing Australia today.
Over a series of five evenings from September 17 to November 19, a range of topics from border security to climate change will be up for debate.
Each conversation will be chaired by organisers Francine Bartlett, Graeme Sanders and Maree Byrne.
Ms Byrne said a resource person would also be present for each session.
“A resource person who is absolutely immersed in the topic will be present to ensure the conversations engage with the facts,” Ms Byrne said.
“This is a series of discussions, so people need to register for all five conversations.”
The aim of the conversations is for individuals from varied backgrounds to discuss and reflect upon complex problems openly and respectfully.
A week before each conversation, participants will receive a two-page reading to familiarise themselves with the topic.
This will include links to further reading and Ms Byrne said people could do as much thinking as they wanted to.
Conversations about Tomorrow is free, but a small donation to assist with costs would be appreciated.
Each evening will run from 7.30pm to 9.30pm in the Henrietta Rose Room, Bendooley Street, Bowral.
The discussions will be limited to 30 people and 16 places have already been filled.
