What kind of society do we want to become? Australia’s unprecedented run of economic growth has failed to deliver a more stable or harmonious society. Like many Western societies, we are in the midst of a period of rampant individualism and materialism, becoming more self-absorbed, more competitive, more socially fragmented, more anxious, more depressed, more medicated, deeper in debt and increasingly addicted. How do we correct this course so we can head towards a more compassionate, less anxious future?

The School of Life proudly presents an evening with esteemed social researcher and bestselling author Hugh Mackay, as he draws on his 60-year research career to present a fearless and passionate vision for the kind of people and society we could become. Hugh invites us to consider the possibility that the clearest signs of the health of a society are to be found in the life of its local neighbourhoods and communities.

Throughout the evening, expect to be challenged to think differently about the power of our individual choices in shaping our society’s future. It’s time to consider the role of compassion in addressing issues such as anxiety, cultural diversity, the digital and social media divide and economic inequality. What new ideas and insights will we share about how courage, wisdom and imagination can pave our way toward a more compassionate, less anxious society?
