Field Trip - Democracy in the 21st Century - World Philosophy Day
19 November, 2015
Is Democracy Still Relevant For Our 21st Century World?
A Q&A style panel discussion
Our sister club, The Hunter Valley Socratic Society, with the cooperation of noted author and columnist Mr Ross Gittins AM, provide a forum to excite your democratic roots and question where our democracy is going.
Our panel has expertise in the economy, politics, law and philosophy.
- Mr Ross Gittins on economics
- Dr Alison Convery on politics
- Mr Frank Oakes on the law
- Mr Tim Cox on philosophy
The panel will critically examine the bases of our global and domestic democracies and examine what works and what doesn’t for the continued good and freedoms inherent in our current and past democratic environment.
Come and find out if we are getting it right.
