Saturday Session, Online – Saturday 11 September


The Saturday Sessions provide our alumni a way to extend their professional development and ‘top-up’ their Cranlana experience.  The Saturday Sessions discuss different topical issues and explore ethical themes such as power, fairness, justice, trust and short- vs long-term thinking. Using the Cranlana method, these truly fascinating conversations about the things that matter are based on a selection of provided readings and are guided by our expert Moderators. These intimate sessions of philosophical and ethical discussion will refuel your sense of moral courage, re-connect you to your critical reasoning capabilities and provide a forum to re-engage with the extraordinary Cranlana alumni.

The online events allow you, wherever you’re located, to join us and your peers.  
As we watch events unfold in Afghanistan, the validity and value of the war there are being debated. Against this background, and on the 20th anniversary of terrorists crashing planes into the World Trade Centre in New York, the Pentagon in Washington and in Pennsylvania, we explore civil liberties versus security. Those attacks prompted much tougher national security laws in many countries, including Australia. Is it necessary to trade some democratic freedoms for safety and if so, have we got the balance right?
Participants will be emailed links to pre-readings, and a Zoom invitation a few days prior.
*Please note the event times are EST.
