RMIT Culture Talks: Barely Gettin’ By – Radical Hope

Be part of the audience for a live recording of the podcast Barely Getting’ By, hosted by Emma Shortis and featuring special guests.

Forming part of Barely Getting’ By’s fourth season, ‘Up in Flames’, this event will examine climate policy as a global modern imperative. The panel will discuss the necessity of imagining different futures, local activism, action-based research, the role of governments and how radical hope might help us envisage and enact the path out of a climate change ravaged future.    

Hosted by GUSS researcher Emma Shortis, with Jeff Sparrow, James Blackwell and Mittul Vahanvati. 

This event is part of the RMIT Culture Talks: a four-part series designed to translate knowledge and examine issues affecting the community in an engaging and accessible way. Each session will include RMIT academics as speakers alongside collaborators, industry representatives and community members, showcasing creative, innovative ideas and research.
