Aus-PNG Network social evening - Sydney

17 May 2018 -
5:45pm to 7:30pm
at Lowy Institute

Join us on Thursday 17 May in Sydney for our quarterly networking event to bring together as many as possible of the diverse and talented group making up the Aus-PNG Network. This informal event is an excellent opportunity to make new connections with others interested in Papua New Guinea and the Australia-Papua New Guinea relationship.

You will hear from Leonard Blazeby, Head of Mission in Australia for the International Committee of the Red Cross, about their work in the PNG Highlands with those affected by tribal violence. These conflicts cause several deaths and leave thousands displaced every year and yet they receive little attention in Australia.

Drinks and canapes will be served. All are welcome to come along to network and learn more about the relationship between Australia and Papua New Guinea.
