This year the University is revamping what used to be the Winter Lecture Series into the Winter Symposium, turning it into three events featuring multi-disciplinary panels providing commentary on current issues in Wellington and Auckland in July and Queenstown in August.
The title for this year's symposium is Why Should You Care? The idea is to cover big issues that matter to New Zealanders close to the 2017 Election. The Wellington event topic is "The Future of Work".
We are fortunate to have Lyttelton satirist and columnist Joe Bennett who will MC the three events, and we have chosen an exciting group of Otago panellists, a group of our best and brightest leading thinkers in the chosen topics.
Panellists for Wellington include: Professor David Baxter (Physiotherapy and Director of Ageing Well National Science Challenge); Dr Andrew Coleman (Economics); Professor Richard Porter (Psychological Medicine, Christchurch); Dr Sara Walton (Management).
As the event in Wellington is being held at Parliament, attendance will be by invitation only. If you would like to register for the invitation list, please email with the following code: WLG Winter Symposium.
