The Australia Institute and Sustainable Population Australia will host a speech by Dick Smith on Wednesday, 10 March.

Dick will discussĀ ‘Population: the elephant in the room we have ignored for too long’.

“Australia’s population is set to explode, reaching at least 36 million by 2050. As it stands, our population is already growing faster than any developed nation, and faster than countires like China, India and Indonesia. If we maintain this rate of growth in the years to come, I believe it will be a disaster. The way of life we love in Australia will be forever changed as we are crowded into packed and dirty cities,” said Mr Smith.

5.30 for 6pm start, Molonglo Room, Canberra Club, 45 West Row, Canberra City
