Community leader is this year’s Investigator

Reverend Tim Costello AO, one of Australia’s most respected community leaders and sought-after commentators on social justice issues, will present this year’s Investigator Lecture for Flinders University, providing his unique insights about conflicts and crises currently facing the world.

The lecture, being held in the Adelaide Town Hall on Thursday 8 September, will have Reverend Costello offering his thoughts on the war in Ukraine, ongoing conflicts around the world and emergencies triggered by the global COVID-19 pandemic, having far-reaching global impacts on business, trade, political landscapes, societal health and people’s wellbeing.

Reverend Costello’s Investigator Lecture will be followed by a panel of experts discussing a range of topical issues, from the impact of climate change on public health to the inequality and distribution of resources. The expert panel, facilitated by Channel 7 reporter Jessica Adamson, includes:

  • Professor Paul Arbon AM, PhD FACN, FAAN, Matthew Flinders Distinguished Professor and Director of the Torrens Resilience Initiative.
  • Professor Leonard Notaras AO, Executive Director of the National Critical Care and Trauma Response Centre.
  • Eric Tlozek, ABC News reporter and video journalist.

The Investigator Lecture is an important part of Flinders University’s public education program and a significant contribution towards the cultural life of South Australia. It also serves as the showpiece of our 2022 Fearless Conversations series, being thought-provoking and inspiring live panel discussions that examine a range of industries to showcase the innovation and creativity that will forge a fearless future for our state.
