In October 2018, the Edmund Rice Centre’s Pacific Calling Partnership is bringing one of the world’s foremost voices for climate justice to Australia. Anote Tong, climate warrior and former President of Kiribati will be meeting with politicians, talking to the media, conducting workshops and giving public talks in Melbourne and Sydney.

He is renowned for his role in building awareness of the impacts of climate change in the Pacific, the leadership of front-line communities, and the urgent need for stronger action from the international community, notably Australia.
