Peter Garrett AM will be presenting the Institute for Applied Ecology's 2015 Krebs Lecture at the University of Canberra. And we're pretty excited about it. The former frontman of iconic rock band, Midnight Oil, has been an environmental activist and politician for decades, and has previously worked with the Australian Conservation Foundation and Greenpeace.

In the lecture, he'll be asking the question: how long can we keep biting the hand that feeds us? According to Garrett, it's now a crime against humanity to delay action on climate change, and Australia has plenty to lose if we don't change our ways.

The tickets to the lecture are sold out, but we're lucky enough to be partnering with the Institute for Applied Ecology and hosting an exclusive live stream of the event. Watch below and join the discussion!
