2002 Laureate Mary Robinson: People First – working together for a strong, just and inclusive society
On 17 March 2016, 2002 Sydney Peace Prize Laureate visited Sydney to headline Sydney City Talks to talk about inclusive, sustainable and just cities.
A forceful human rights advocate, Mrs Mary Robinson, President of the Mary Robinson Foundation – Climate Justice, and former President of Ireland, will discuss how governments, business and people can work together and the importance of social policy with the wellbeing citizen at its core.
“For too long, discussions on sustainability have been separated from social justice. (…) What we are entering into now, is an era where we understand that these aspirations are both complimentary and mutually reinforcing.”
