2019 Amnesty International Oration

- Community Announcement -

Tuesday 18 June, 6pm - 7.15pm

Allan Scott Auditorium, Hawke Building,
UniSA City West campus, 55 North Terrace, Adelaide

DELIVERED BY KUMI NAIDOO,
SECRETARY GENERAL, AMNESTY INTERNATIONAL

We are living in a time when hatred and fear are used to divide communities, close borders, and distract attention from the complex problems facing our world.

Intolerance and hate are used to justify cruelty against others and build a rhetoric of fear. What is the role of human rights in building a fairer, happier world?

To move forward, we must recognise the interconnection of rights. Climate change is tied to inequality and race. Civil and political rights are suppressed at the moment people demand basic economic justice. Sex discrimination is bound up in the economic exclusion of women. People who take action to realise these rights are demonised and feared.

In the 2019 Amnesty International Oration, Secretary General of Amnesty International, Kumi Naidoo discusses the role rights protection can play in building a better, more inclusive world. Amnesty International is the world’s largest human rights movement. We are tackling some of the most complex challenges of our time.

The Many Dimensions of Sustainabilitly

- Community Announcement -

The Many Dimensions of Sustainabilitly
Presented by Prof. Ian Lowe
6pm, 2 July 2019, Bradley Forum, 55 Nth Terrace, Hawke Bldg, Level 5

While the accelerating loss of biodiversity has not become a political issue, climate change has. A comprehensive response to that problem could be a major step toward a sustainable future. Even if such an approach garners political support, however, there will remain a fundamental obstacle to sustainability: the widespread delusion that unlimited growth is possible in a finite world.
