PSC in Conversation with Joëlle Gergis - Humanity’s Moment : A Climate Scientist’s Case for Hope


Date(s) - 01/03/2023
6:00 pm - 7:30 pm


Joëlle Gergis – Humanity’s Moment : A Climate Scientist’s Case for Hope is the first in our PSC in Conversation series for 2023. Begun in 2022, the series is designed to invite deeper conversation about the emotional and existential dimensions of climate change, looking at some of Australia’s most interesting thinkers on this topic. Please join us to participate in and expand the conversation.

Dr Joëlle Gergis is an award-winning climate scientist and writer. She is an internationally recognised expert in Australian and Southern Hemisphere climate variability and change who has authored over 100 scientific publications. Joëlle is a lead author on the United Nations’ Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) Sixth Assessment Report — a global, state-of-the art review of climate change science.

Joëlle will be talking with PSC’s Charles Le Feuvre, about her latest book, Humanity’s Moment: A Climate Scientist’s Case for Hope.

In Humanity’s Moment, Joëlle takes us through the science in the IPCC report with unflinching honesty, explaining what it means for our future, while sharing her personal reflections on bearing witness to the heartbreak of the climate emergency unfolding in real time. But this is not a lament for a lost world. It is an inspiring reminder that human history is an endless tug-of-war for social justice. We are each a part of an eternal evolutionary force that can transform our world. Joëlle shows us that the solutions we need to live sustainably already exist – we just need the social movement and political will to create a better world.
