Julian Cribb: Poisoned Planet

Please note: Due to a flight delay, this event will now begin at 1.15pm. The MOAT lunch cart will be selling $10 lunchboxes from 12.35pm as normal. We apologise for any inconvenience.

Everybody knows our food and environment have been polluted by chemicals, yet we remain ignorant of their potential effects and how we might avoid ingesting these harmful substances. We have become so inured to hearing news of chemical spills and dubious ingredients that we forget the danger posed by living in a chemical world.

In his new book Poisoned Planet, award-winning journalist and author Julian Cribb maps out the big picture of chemical consequences. Examining the evidence and science from multiple international studies, he outlines the full extent of the problem and proposes solutions that will enable us to not only undo the damage, but lead to better health for us and our planet.

Lunchbox/Soapbox

We love exploring ideas at the Wheeler Centre, and encouraging others to do the same. That’s why every Thursday lunchtime we hand the microphone over to the great thinkers, dreamers and orators of our time.

With a dazzling range of passionate speakers and unusual topics, our soapbox provides a platform for the eclectic, topical and enlightening stories you won’t hear elsewhere. This is the most memorable lunch break you’ll have all week.

If you’re in need of sustenance of body as well as mind, the MOAT lunch cart will be serving delicious $10 lunchboxes in the performance space from 12.20pm.
