    With climate change accelerating and the reef on the brink of destruction, we need the sharp tool of legal action to defend the environment. Hear from EDO lawyer Michael Berkman, reef scientist Selina Ward and campaigner Derec Davies.
  • SAT 31 DEC, 4:00PM. GREENhouse.
    Feature: GREAT BARRIER REEF v THE PEOPLE OF QLD
    In this light-hearted trial, the Reef is suing us for allowing developments that have harmed its ecosystem. Dr Selina Ward, Dr Ian Lowe and Jo Bragg (EDO) contribute to each side of the fence, with His Honour Judge Ian Dearden presiding on the palings. Bound to be raucous and irreverent, the people of Qld should hope that the Reef is gentle with them.
