Monique Ryan the First Year : Climate Wins and Challenges

Wednesday, June 28, 2023 7:30pm - 9:00pm
Location: Balwyn Park Centre, 206A Whitehorse Road, Balwyn

Dr Monique Ryan MP was elected to Parliament on 21 May 2022. She rode a teal wave of optimism for action on climate change, integrity in government and gender equality. Join us to hear Dr Ryan's reflections on her first year in Parliament with a climate focus.

The Independents don't hold the balance of power but have had a significant impact on this 47th Parliament. We have asked Dr Ryan to speak about what it is like to work as an Independent in Parliament and to give us her view of the key climate legislation which has been passed or which is in prospect.

City of Boroondara Councillor Susan Biggar will then facilitate a conversation with Dr Ryan and there will be ample opportunity for audience questions.

For those of us who are constituents in Kooyong, we are in the novel position of having a representative who supports strong climate action. This meeting will give us the opportunity to explore how we can support our elected representative in achieving the ambitions we share.

Please join us at 7:00 pm for a 7:30 pm start, at the Balwyn Park Centre, 206A Whitehorse Road, Balwyn.

Please note that everyone must RSVP to this event individually to avoid oversubscription.
