A public forum and live webcast on the future of coal and community, with a special focus on the Hunter Valley. Presented by The Global Mail, the Australian Centre for Independent Journalism and Tilt Vision. The Hunter has a strong history balancing coal mining, agriculture and community. But with almost two-thirds of the Upper Hunter – more than 1,200 square kilometres – now under lease for mining exploration, is the balance shifting?
Is coal out of control?
Who is shaping the future of the Hunter in the 21st century?
Make sure your voice is part of the debate – come along and have your say!
Entry is free. Registration details coming soon.
