Sydney Ideas - Polar Extremes - Future of Arctic and Antarctic poles under irreversible threat

6 August. 6.00pm - 7.30pm

Polar regions are increasingly at the centre of environmental, geo-political and cultural shifts, but it has now become imperative to protect these pristine wilderness areas from catastrophic change.

The poles have become a striking focus for observing and understanding environmental change in recent times. Global warming is melting glaciers across the world at an alarming rate, and experts warn that humans have only 12 years to take action to avert devastating and irreversible climate change. This change could include the extinction of unique species such as polar bears, who won't be able to adapt if their habitat disappears.

These are just a few of the reasons to describe the Black Sea as the World’s largest underwater museum.

The Einstein Lecture – The Search for Dark Matter

15 August. 6.30pm to 7.30pm

There are phenomena in our universe that are almost beyond our realm of understanding – what lies in the dark space between the stars? How can we measure things that are invisible? What prevents the galaxies from expanding into oblivion? In the last decade, there has been impressive progress in detecting dark matter interactions. The search continues with crucial experiments deep in the bowels of an old gold mine in rural Australia using a direct detection method. Leading the way is physicist Elisabetta Barberio, who will explain this underground undertaking and outline the impact the findings can have on our understanding of the universe.

Future Skills Framework 2030 - Australia is not equipped with the skills for the future of work

In the rapidly changing world of work Australia’s long-term economic growth will be reliant on an adequately skilled and educated workforce. FYA’s research provides strong evidence that our current and future workers are finding the transition to full-time work more challenging and feel they lack the right skills.

Our ageing population means older Australians are leaving the workforce in larger numbers than young people can replace them and skill shortages are costing the economy.

Living on Campus

If you are heading to uni next year then it is highly likely that you have been considering your accommodation options. Residential colleges and halls of residence are the most popular options, and ones which are commonly associated with the university experience.

Most students choose to live at colleges and halls of residence because they provide a great opportunity to live close to (or on) campus, become totally immersed in university life and make lifelong friends. While student apartments and shared rental houses may also offer proximity to campus and good social opportunities, residential colleges and halls pride themselves on the well-rounded experience they offer.
