“We are in an age of transformation; local and sub-national governments will be central to effective place-based change” - Professor Kate Auty.
It's time for Melbourne Forum members and guests to engage with this robust conversation and we are fortunate to have Kate join us to lead the discussion on the role of government.
Kate Auty is the ACT Commissioner for Sustainability and the Environment. She holds post graduate qualifications in law, history and environmental science. Kate is a member of the Victorian Bar, an Honorary Professorial Fellow at the University of Melbourne, a member of the Environment Institute of Australia and New Zealand and former Victorian Government Commissioner for Environmental Sustainability.
Kate was a senior lawyer for the Royal Commission into Aboriginal Deaths in Victoria, Tasmania and Western Australia and was instrumental in establishing Aboriginal sentencing courts in both Victoria and Western Australia (2000-2009). In 2008, Kate was appointed a Charles Joseph LaTrobe Fellow with the Centre for Sustainable Regional Communities at LaTrobe University. In 2008 and 2009, she was the Chair of the Victorian Ministerial Reference Council on Climate Change Adaptation and a member of the Premier's Reference Committee on Climate Change.
