26 November 2019 @ 10:00 am
Sustainable Population Australia (SPA) launched our discussion paper, Population growth and infrastructure in Australia: The catch-up illusion, on 26 November 2019.
The launch was held in Sydney at the NSW State Library. The session was chaired by the President of SPA, the Hon. Sandra Kanck. The keynote speaker was the Hon. Professor Bob Carr (SPA Patron) and the lead author of the paper, Leith Van Onselen from MacroBusiness, also spoke. The event was very well attended by a cross section of the community, including concerned residents, environmentalists, academics and the media.
This paper and the launch was the culmination of several months’ effort by the SPA team.
