This Symposium launches a discourse on the values which undergird personal life, families and being Australian and global citizens.


* The Symposium is intended to provoke our thinking about those values which either enhance or harm life.

* Hugh Mackay will chart community trends and with our panellists will discuss ways ahead for these new 21st Century times.


* No particular religious perspective will be promoted, but panellists may share how their own faith experience shapes their views.
