Kids are full of difficult, challenging questions. Why are we destroying the reef? Why won't we accept refugees on our shores? Is it ever ok to tell a lie?
Each of our minor and momentous decisions shape the world we’re making for our children. In this thought provoking evening for parents (and professionals who work with children), Dr Simon Longstaff offers engaging approaches to teaching children how to think and behave ethically. Dr Longstaff is the Executive Director of The Ethics Centre, co-founder of the Festival of Dangerous Ideas, and author of The Spider's Song and Everyday Ethics.
You may have questions of your own for Dr Longstaff, or that your kids want answered - feel free to bring these ethical dilemmas along.
5:45pm: Doors open, access to the Spiders - Alive and Deadly exhibition, welcome drink
6:30pm: Talk, followed by a Q&A and book signing for Dr Longstaff's The Spider's Song and Everyday Ethics.
