Stages: Stage 5 (Years 9 and 10), Stage 6 (Years 11 and 12)

In partnership with the Sydney Writers' Festival, NESA is again delivering special student sessions, including sessions at Parramatta.

The Sydney Writers’ Festival Student Sessions feature some of the world's most engaging minds speaking on topics linked to the NSW school curriculum. Held in venues at Parramatta and Walsh Bay, climate scientist Tim Flannery and award-winning author Bruce Pascoe present Unpacking the Change in Climate.  

Particularly relevant to Science, History, Ancient History, Geography and Agriculture students, Unpacking the Change in Climate explores the many ways the Indigenous peoples of Australia managed the harsh climate. Examining early forms of Indigenous land management, as described in the records and diaries of colonial explorers, Tim and Bruce consider what we can learn from these practices today.
