Speakers:

Christine Milne

Christine speaks to us about her autobiography An Activist Life which describes the ups and downs of how politics actually works and the valuable lessons learned by both the Green Party and herself by being part of building the party in 1972, contesting elections, being in parliament, being in a government coalition and all the while evolving from each experience.

"Thinking and acting locally and globally at the same time" was Christine's call to action for Global Greens in her Greens2017 speech, and in this webinar Christine discusses with us what that means in practice.
