The latest Denison Debate was held at the University of Tasmania on Monday 6 June, in the lead up to the State Budget and examined priorities and options for Tasmania’s future.
“It's the ideal time to explore questions about what is Tasmania’s future and whether we are in fact the nation’s beggars or whether we can be real choosers?” Director of the Inglis Clark Centre Dr Natasha Cica said.
“Tasmania may well be standing at a tipping point - whether we thrive, or slide, depends on being smart and strategic about our future.”
Dr Natasha Cica, Director of the Inglis Clark Centre for Civil Society, was in discussion with the following guest speakers:
Saul Eslake - Productivity Growth Program Director, Grattan Institute
Hon Ruth Forrest MLC – Independent Member for Murchison
Margaret Reynolds – State Manager, National Disability Services
Dr Richard Eccleston – UTAS School of Government
Peter Poulet – State Architect
The Denison Debate is a series of events hosted by the Inglis Clark Centre for Civil Society at UTAS. The series aims to provide a forum for more open and vibrant Tasmanian conversations about ideas and values in our society.
