Confronting our consumerism – values for a sustainable future

It examines how human values underpin these challenges, and how we can work with values to find pathways towards sustainable futures.

DATE:  Thursday 9 October, 2014

TIME:  6:30pm

VENUE: UTS Building 11, level 00, room 405 (13 Broadway, Ultimo NSW 2007)
