About The Event

Balmain, NSW 2041 Australia
Wednesday, June 14, 2023
7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

Alan Finkel in conversation with Richard Aedy

How we power the world is no small matter: the future of the planet, and humanity, is at stake. How will future generations judge this one when it comes to moving away from carbon? And how will our nation stand up?

In his new book, former chief scientist Alan Finkel shares his compelling insights and expertise and makes the case for Australia leading the way in the global transition to clean energy.

On 14 June at The Royal Oak, join him in conversation with journalist, radio host and current presenter of ABC RN’s The Money, Richard Aedy.

Copies of Powering Up will be available for purchase at the venue through Roaring Stories, with Finkel signing copies after the discussion.


Attendees are asked to arrive at 6.30pm for a 7pm start. Seating is unallocated – another reason to arrive early to secure an optimal spot. Why not make a full evening of it, too, by ordering a meal at the Royal Oak before or after the event? One of Balmain’s oldest and most loved pubs, it serves a delicious range of food and beverages.

If you miss out on a ticket, you can still watch the event as it is livestreamed from the Roaring Stories Facebook page (accessible on the Home page and from the Live tab). A recording will also be available to view later as an upload on the Roaring Stories YouTube channel.
