Exploring the Ethics of Truth and Influence: Public talk Thu 23 May

  • Sustainability

In a post-truth world, what can we do to keep truth alive? What is truth? What are our responsibilities with regard to truth and to the people around us and to our community? How should we seek to appropriately influence others? For parents, teachers, leaders and community members. The evening will start with a talk and then move into an open discussion on themes that arise within the group.
