A public forum – all welcome.

Ignorance is Bliss: How much science do we need to know? And why should we trust scientists?

From medicines and food, to our hobbies and workplaces, there are risks everywhere we look.  Join host Paul Willis (RiAus), Anna-Maria Arabia (FASTS), Nadia Levin (ANSTO) and Rod Lamberts (ANU/CPAS) as they take a slice of science, a sachet of ethics, and a liberal dusting of risky technology and try to work out if it’s possible to make objective, ethically unambiguous decisions about science in our lives.

Time: 1830 hrs onwards

Venue: Civic Hotel, 1st floor, 388 Pitt St Sydney
