COME AND JOIN US
TOGETHER WITH OUR NORTHERN EUROPEAN NEIGHBOURS
FOR AN ENLIGHTENING and INVIGORATING TALK
In the months and years ahead, as we seek to re-build our economy after COVID-19, Australia can take inspiration from Nordic and Northern European countries – many of which have been achieving outcomes that far surpass ours.
Norway not only has the highest living standards in the world, but also extremely low social and economic inequality. It manages to achieve these outcomes by fostering participation in the labour market, investing in education, redistributing income through the tax and welfare system and investing the proceeds of its oil and gas revenue as well as leading in renewable, clean energy.
And it’s neighbour, Denmark, has now managed to halve its per capita carbon emission while Iceland, by supporting the involvement of fathers in parenting and by legislating to secure equal pay, has now topped the gender equality rankings for a decade and counting.
And through long-term investment in renewable electricity, energy efficiency and sustainable cities, solutions do exist – we just need to know where to find them.
By understanding how other countries around the world – the Nordic and Northern European countries in particular – we are working to crack the big problems which helps illuminate the sort of action required to make a difference.
Join Andrew Wear at this exclusive event, where he will discuss these ideas and more, drawn from his recently published book Solved! How Other Countries Have Cracked The World’s Biggest Problems And We Can Too.
