Event description

Description


Environmental Justice Australia’s report Toxic and Terminal: How the regulation of coal-fired power stations fails Australian communities is the result of exhaustive research, Freedom of Information searches, surveillance of 10 major power stations on Australia’s east coast, and advice from health experts and industry whistle-blowers.

Bronya Lipski, co-author of Toxic and Terminal will explain the key findings of the report and run through how you can have your say on the EPA Victoria’s current review of the licences for Victoria’s power station licences.

Speaker bio: Bronya Lipski is a solicitor with Environmental Justice Australia. EJA is a not-for-profit environmental legal practise specialising in public interest environmental law and advocacy. Bronya’s work with EJA focuses on air pollution law reform in Victoria, NSW, QLD, and at the federal level. She grew up in the Latrobe Valley under the shadow of the brown coal-fired power stations and has seen first-hand the harmful effects of power station pollution on both human and environmental health.
