Raimond Gaita and Katerina Gaita: A Climate of Change


How might a philosopher frame the problem of climate change? What can philosophers learn from environmentalists and vice versa?

In this conversation, we’ll bring together a prominent philosopher and a prominent climate-change activist who just happen to be from the same family: Raimond and Katerina Gaita. Raimond is the author of many books including Romulus, My Father and is a professorial fellow at Melbourne University. Katerina is a climate communicator and the founding director of Climate for Change, a non-profit, grassroots organisation that galvanises ordinary Australians to live sustainably and to take climate action.

At Benalla Performing Arts and Convention Centre in September, the pair will discuss civics, sustainability and legacy, generational differences and the future of the planet.

Presented in partnership with Benalla Rural City Council.
