Transport

Listen to audio from this event here (mp3, 25mb, 1 hour). We’ll publish a video early this week.

As our cities get more crowded, our transport infrastructure ages, and climate change brings new challenges, transport looms large as a knotty policy issue. What is happening at the cutting edge of public transport, and clean car technology? What’s the state of Australia’s public transport systems and road transport network – and why do we always have to choose one over the other?

Question time

When you think ‘question time’, perhaps you picture rowdy politicians cussing each other out. But in our new series, we’re putting the dignity back into proceedings … along with a generous amount of time. It’s one full hour of pure Q&A between you, our audience, moderator Madeleine Morris, and a panel of experts in the evening’s chosen field of inquiry. Get informed about the key issues of our time, in the lead-up to the Victorian state election.

This programme, Question time will tackle three critical topics: renewable energy, jobs of the future, and the always-fraught issue of transport, now and into the future. BYO hot potatoes and burning questions.

Hosted by Madeleine Morris.

Presented in partnership with Arts House.
