Winthrop Professor Carmen Lawrence will explore what we know - and need to know - about the human psyche to make any progress in crafting workable solutions to the problem of climate change when she presents The University of Western Australia's 2010 Joseph Gentilli Memorial Lecture.
The Director of the Centre for the Study of Social Change at the UWA School of Psychology, Professor Lawrence trained as a research psychologist at UWA before entering politics and becoming Australia's first female Premier.
The Joseph Gentilli memorial lecture was established in 2005 to honour the memory and intellectual legacy of an influential and long serving scholar who devoted 60 years of his life to UWA. During his long and distinguished career, Dr Gentilli helped to bring about a comprehensive understanding of the climates of Australia.
