Our great set of keynote speakers and panels spaned some black humour from the inimitable Rod Quantock at our vegetarian conference dinner to a panel on the School Strike for Climate (SS4C) movement, with student protesters  Harriet O’Shae Carre and Kaity Thompson, led by climate campaigner David Spratt.

Joshua Farley, a professor at the University of Vermont (Burlington, US) spoke on the future of ecological economics. Renowned in ecological economics circles, Farley teaches in Economics for the Anthropocene graduate training and research program, a North American university partnership that uses ecological economics to create real-world environmental solutions.

Yorta Yorta strategist and campaigner Karrina Nolan contributed a video on the environmental activities of Original Power to the talk given by Emeritus Professor Jon Altman on a hybrid economy model.  Jon was Australian National University Foundation Director of the Centre for Aboriginal Economic.

Environmental scientist Ian Lowe AO (Emeritus Professor at Griffith University) expanded on population issues in Australia and joined RMIT University Emeritus Professor Mike Berry discussing urban challenges.

Plus, we had 16 special sessions with more than 50 speakers from around Australia and beyond. Program sessions, typically with three speakers per panel and 30mins of Q&A involving all conference registrants, ranged over many topics — ethics and steady-state economies; sustainable regional and rural futures; energy, carbon emissions and climate change; just transitions, enterprises and regions; macro-economics for the 21st century; energy, appropriate technology and the 4th Industrial Revolution; the ‘blue economy’, turtles and limits to over-fishing; health, resilience and systems thinking ; First Nations and Indigenous economies; practitioners; radical futures and ecological economics; deep ethics and commons; lessons on limits; the future of ecological economics; communicating ecological economics; water; ‘development’ and decarbonisation; learning ecological economics; economics for the Anthropocene; money; and governance for the 21st century.
