Ending the cycle of poverty


From: Tuesday October 16, 2018, 5:45 pm

To: Tuesday October 16, 2018, 7:30 pm

Governments, individuals and community organisations work hard to disrupt, manage and minimise the impacts of poverty. But what would it take to end it?

What keeps people trapped in poverty, both individually and inter-generationally? What would it take to break the cycle in terms of housing, education and jobs?

This Anti-Poverty Week please join the Institute for the Study of Social Change, the Economic Society of Australia and Anglicare’s Social Action Research Centre for a special event as Meg Webb discusses ending the cycle of poverty with our expert panel of Dr Kathleen Flanagan, Professor Natalie Brown and TasCoss CEO Kym Goodes, and invite questions from the audience.

If we want things to change, we have to do things differently – what would it take to end the cycle of poverty?
