On the 29th of June UnionAID is hosting the second annual lecture in honour of Peter Conway; trade union leader, economist, internationalist and a founding Trustee of UnionAID, who sadly died in 2015.
Peter dedicated his life to advocating for working people in New Zealand and developing countries, particularly in the Pacific. These annual lectures keep that mission alive with guest speakers delivering new ideas for development and international unionism.
Rethinking Work for Human Development
The lecture will be delivered by former Administrator of the UNDP and Prime Minister of New Zealand, the Rt Hon. Helen Clark. Her lecture ‘Rethinking Work for Human Development‘ will look at the role of decent work in human development and building fair and inclusive societies. She will also discuss some of the increasingly challenging issues in the work sphere – from robots, to the political anger of those excluded from decent work. The lecture will be followed by a short Q&A with Helen.
6:00pm, Thursday 29 June (doors open at 5:30pm)
Rutherford House, Victoria University of Wellington
