Looking Outward: The Case for Compassion and Hope with Tim Costello

A woman carrying her child

We live at a time when our region and our world seem burdened by many heart-breaking and apparently insoluble problems—radical inequality between wealthy and impoverished nations; destitution caused by famine and war; never-ending refugee flows; political acts of ethnic cleansing and even genocide.

Tim Costello has devoted his life to searching for practical solutions to problems faced by peoples across the globe in situations of distress and to encourage his fellow citizens to assist in such vital work. As Tim recounts his experience from his most recent trip to the Bangladesh Rohingya refugee camps, his message is not one of despair but of compassion and of hope.

There is no broadcaster in this country more highly regarded for their professionalism, fair-mindedness and penetration than ABC Melbourne’s Jon Faine, who has become a part of the democratic architecture of his home state, Victoria.

Cornelia (Conny) Lenneberg, Executive Director, Brotherhood of St Laurence will facilitate this event.

You are invited to join them in what promises to be an enlightening conversation, the first in a series examining pathways towards building a better Australia.
