Baby Boomers and population trends will be the subject of this year's Manning Clark House Day of Ideas, hosted by the Institute of Advanced Studies at The University of Western Australia this Friday 7 October.
This year's event will feature a range of speakers to discuss the idea of how the population dynamics predicted by mid-century will affect how we live - from the urban spaces we live in, to our idea of communities, including rural populations, and of course to the impact of population trends on the environment.
There will be ample opportunity for discussion and the raising and sharing of ideas during the day's seminar.
Manning Clark House Inc is a not-for-profit organisation whose aim is to promote and encourage vigorous discussion and debate in Australian society on issues of public importance and in all areas of scholarly interest.
