Free

Without the green bans of the 1970s and after, the face of Sydney and many other Australian cities would be very different today. This illustrated talk will cover radical unionist Jack Mundey’s leading role in the fight against the ‘slash-and-burn’ philosophy of the green ban era − with a review of his ongoing legacy and inspirational leadership over half a century of dedicated activism.

About the speaker: James Colman is a Sydney-based architect, planner, freelance writer and part-time university lecturer. From an initial intensive period of architectural practice in Australia and abroad he moved into urban design and town planning.
