As the planet's climate undergoes dramatic change, how can we survive in a transformed and sometimes threatening world? Griffith Review 63: Writing the Country examines strategies from surprising quarters – from accountancy to the law; from history to fiction – to offer radical ideas on how we might navigate this new era of the Anthropocene. Join contributors James Bradley, Jane Gleeson-White and Tom Griffiths to discuss these issues.
Chair: Ashley Hay
