The Keith Roby Memorial Lecture in Community Science is an annual, free public science lecture made possible by the generous support of donors.
Presented by community change facilitator, Dr Louise Duxbury, the lecture examines how, despite the many advances in science, the well-being of people across the globe is variable with an increasing divide between rich and poor and the sustainability of natural systems is under threat.
Presented by animal ecologist and conservation biologist, Dr Denis Saunders AM, the lecture examines the degradation of Western Australia’s Wheatbelt region and discuss whose role it should be to protect the native biota the Wheatbelt has remaining.
Presented by physicist and climate scientist, Dr Bill Hare, the lecture examines The Paris Agreement’s central aim to strengthen the global response to the threat of climate change, looking at the opportunities for Australia and Western Australia, to take advantage of the coming transformation of the global energy system.
Lectures from earlier years are available online via the Library.
