Event Overview

Moving forward Australia needs a clear, shared roadmap that translates intent into action, coordinates efforts across sectors and drives collaboration between governments, communities, industries and stakeholders. This CEDA forum brings together leaders of Governments and private sector companies that are forging pathways toward net zero to consider: 

  • The cost of achieving net zero – and the cost of not reaching it at all. How do we build in resilience and what does it mean for business and planning?    
  • The policy prescription for action - is there really only one pathway forward, or are there multiple options to be considered and progressed?
  • The rigour and integrity of the evidence base we employ to inform future decision making – how do we generate and operate from a point of shared understanding and?;
  • The shared responsibility to take meaningful action while safeguarding our economic development and prospects for generations to come.

At CEDA we are proud to regularly convene and engage speakers and audiences as an essential element of our efforts to broaden discussion and debate of the most important policy issues facing Australia. In doing so, our first priority is always the safety and wellbeing of our guests and staff.

CEDA is currently delivering a digital program of public events, podcasts and virtual Trustee roundtable discussions; hybrid events with both a livestream and audience in attendance; and face-face events, where there is member demand and they can be delivered in accordance with government health advice for a specific state.

For face-to-face gatherings, CEDA is working closely with our hosts and venues to ensure that social distancing can be maintained and facilities and equipment have been properly sanitised. Attendance numbers will strictly adhere to government guidelines for each state.In line with government advice we request people that are unwell with cough or fever or other respiratory symptoms do not attend CEDA events. We also ask that you follow government advice and maintain social distancing by refraining from shaking hands or exchanging physical greetings, and wherever possible, staying at least 1.5 metres away from others.

CEDA will continue to closely monitor government advice regarding public gatherings and will follow all relevant health advice from the Australian government in relation to COVID-19.
