A free public lecture at the University of Adelaide will this week explore how to make policy reforms that truly lead to positive changes, using a major environmental issue as its key example.

On Thursday 10 September, Economist Professor Mike Young (Global Food Studies, University of Adelaide) will present the Harvard Chair Lecture, following on from his year as Australian Studies Professor at Harvard University.

While at Harvard, Professor Young began work on a new book and taught a course on the design and implementation of transformational environmental policy reforms.

In his lecture, Professor Young will present guidelines on the development of such policy reforms and use them to explore the question of whether or not South Australia should consider developing a greenhouse gas emission trading scheme.

He will discuss the potential for positive economic outcomes for industry, the state and local communities. Should South Australia move first or wait?
