It was another successful night for the BrisScience series last night, with John Quiggin considering how environmentalist policies can be realised in practice, from an economic perspective. It was a popular topic, with many present keen to engage with the debate over environmentalism versus economic policy. And it was followed by the usual drink and nibblies in the foyer, but this time it was based at City Hall in town – a very comfortable venue.
The next event in the series promises to be exceedingly popular – Margaret Wertheim, discussing the opposing forces of religion and politics. The event is being sponsored by the Australian Government as part of National Science Week, so come along and enjoy the show. Free entry, free drink, free nibblies, no membership required. You can’t lose.
