Saturday Session, Online – Monday 30 November


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.

While each of us is struggling to make sense of the pandemic for our life and our work, and to understand its implications for the future of Australia and the world, we can’t bring you together physically, However wherever you’re located you can join us for virtual Saturday Sessions; a coming together to assist one another to find a moral anchor in these difficult and confusing times. Registered participants will be emailed links to pre-readings, and a Zoom link in the week prior to the Session.

Political compromise: virtue or vice?

Politics is often described as the art of the possible, yet we are wary of our elected representatives striking backroom deals. We may vote for a particular candidate or party because of what they stand for and feel like they lack integrity if they make trade-offs. Yet the result of sticking to your principles is a political deadlock in which nothing gets done on a crucial issue such as climate change, does compromise become the greater virtue?
