How to join in the discussion:
The day is off to a great start in sunny Geelong this morning!
Alfred Deakin Research Institute and Radio Australia will be teaming up to bring you comprehensive coverage of this year’s PNG Symposium.
Why tune in?
This year, we have a whopping total of 75 presenters, 50% of which are Papua New Guinean (that doesn’t mean 75 presentations – a lot of these are group discussions/panels!).
With a live broadcast on Pacific Beat, hosted by Heather Jarvis and Caroline Tiriman and a team of Radio Australia’s Pacific journalists covering the event, as well as a dedicated PNG stream from Pacific Adventist University student radio, we’re ensuring that our message can be heard all across the Pacific!
Here’s when and where to tune in TODAY:
11:05am – 1:00pm: Live from the Symposium
3:30pm – 5:00pm: Women in leadership plenary
This session will be recorded by RA and be made available shortly after the symposium finishes

Dispatch 1: 1 March 2013 – 34 days out.
Less than five weeks to go before we begin our third annual PNG symposium, this year with the focus on ‘Leadership for the Next Generation’.
We are at that stage where, from the outside it looks like nothing much has happened.
But believe me, underneath that placid and smooth surface there is a whole lot of activity, taking up the time of two of us on a more-or-less full time basis, as well as occupying quite a few other Alfred Deakin Research Institute staff members and others too.
Some of this activity I can’t write about, just yet – details are still to be confirmed, and we can’t go public before some Very Important People let us know about what they’re doing.
But there has been a lot of other activity, which I can share with you. Beginning now:
That’s enough, for now. I will be in Port Moresby from Tuesday the 5th to Friday the 8th of March, to see some of the speakers we’ve lined up and to talk about what’s been happening with some of our key partners in PNG – to let them know that, contrary to its smooth and untroubled exterior, the Alfred Deakin Research Institute is a very busy place indeed, and getting busier every day that passes.
