You are warmly invited to attend a special webinar, in conversation with Australian author and social researcher Hugh Mackay AO, exploring how we shape our social reality as COVID-19 restrictions start to ease across the country. Please click on the link below to register.
COVID-19 has touched the lives of all of us, and caused many of us to reflect on our way of life. Join us in a conversation with Hugh Mackay AO to explore the lessons we have learnt from the pandemic, and the ways we might change as a result. This is an opportunity to reflect – perhaps to rethink our values, reset our priorities and reconsider the ways we approach our relationships, our work, our institutions. How should we respond to this heightened sense of our interconnectedness?
