Podcast Series (2021) and Symposium (24-25 February 2022).

We are learning to live with a world that is seemingly perpetually at risk of everything nowadays, where responses are time sensitive, with consequences extending far beyond human domains, and throughout the more-than-human world. The 2019-2020 Australian bushfires have brought into sharp relief how risk needs to keep being re-thought and re-practised, in and amongst climate shifts.

@RISK, which is both a Podcast Series and Symposium, addresses the profound differences in knowledge practices around the unfolding environmental crisis, and how any environmental action could, or should, respond, given the layered, multi-nodal risks involved. What is at risk? Whose risks matter? What knowledge do we need to effect change? How can we do better together from our diverse positions and situations? What are the personal and professional risks involved?

@RISK provides a platform for researchers, policy makers, practitioners and activists who want to engage with this topic outside of their disciplinary or institutional constraints, are already doing so, and/or, have always done so. Why is this? And at what risk to them, and the expertise of those disciplines and their professional roles, do they do so?
