Acknowledging that the world as we know it is coming apart is an act of courage.

If I live to look back at this troubled time, I want to say that I did all that I could, that I was on the right side of history.

The question is, do you want to be part of the legacy that restores our faith in humanity?

Joëlle Gergis is an award-winning climate scientist and lead author on the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change's (IPCC) sixth assessment report. She has seen the evidence of where our humanity is headed. She is acutely aware of how little time we have. And yet, she still has hope.

Join her on Thursday 1 September, where she puts her case forward to the Walkley winning investigative journalist Jess Hill, who won the 2020 Stella Prize for her investigation into domestic abuse, See What You Made Me Do.

Attendees are asked to arrive at 6.30pm for a 7pm start. Seating is unallocated – another reason to arrive early to secure an optimal spot. Why not make a full evening of it, too, by booking a meal at the Royal Oak before or after the event? One of Balmain's oldest and best-known pubs, it serves a delicious range of food and beverages.

Humanity's Moment will be available for purchase at the venue through Roaring Stories, with book signings from Gergis following the discussion.

If you miss out on a ticket, you can still watch the event as it is livestreamed from the Roaring Stories Facebook page (accessible on the Home page and from the Live tab). A recording will also be available to view later as an upload on the Roaring Stories YouTube channel.

Covid-safe information
